Antrim Show is unique in hosting a significant number of the most important Inter-Breed cattle and sheep competition finals.

But the history books will confirm that Banbridge Limousin breeder Jim Quail stole the show at Antrim on Saturday courtesy of his elite bull Lynderg Hero winning both the Breed Championship and the Supreme Beef Inter-Breed accolade. And the victory was made all the sweeter, given the tremendous turnout of stock for the event.

"Antrim is our flagship show of the year as it plays host to the Northern Ireland Limousin Championships," Jim told the Belfast Telegraph.

"Breeders were out in large numbers for this year's event and the standard of competition was exceptionally high. Hero is home-bred. Before coming to Antrim he had already won the Male Championship at this year's Balmoral and Highland Shows. At just 30 months of age, he's now coming into his prime."
