0:02:270:02:29

-There's a lot of interest in this.

0:02:300:02:34

-Are these the best of the best?

0:02:340:02:36

-Are these the best of the best?

-

-Yes, definitely.

0:02:360:02:37

-The stallion, Talgarth Taylor,

-is in front of us.

0:02:380:02:41

-He was named the champion stallion

-a few moments ago.

0:02:420:02:45

-He's just having a little trot.

0:02:460:02:48

-He moves very freely.

0:02:490:02:51

-He's using every leg,

-which pleases me.

0:03:140:03:18

-I'd go for the stallion,

-Talgarth Taylor.

0:03:180:03:22

-He looks great today.

0:03:220:03:24

-However, seeing them side on...

0:03:240:03:27

-..I like the look of

-Ffermymorlais Banter.

0:03:270:03:30

-He has been reserve champion.

0:03:300:03:32

-It's hard to tell.

0:03:320:03:34

-I'd better not say any more!

0:03:350:03:37

-We'll wait to see

-what Francis Goggin is going to do.

0:03:370:03:41

-Yes, indeed, the young stallion...

0:03:440:03:46

-Mountain Pony at this year's Show.

0:04:510:04:53

-It's the Welsh Pony Championship.

0:04:530:04:56

-This is

-for the best youngstock exhibit.

0:04:560:04:59

-Yes, it is.

0:04:590:05:00

-The prizes have been awarded.

0:05:000:05:03

-The Section B

-youngstock championship...

0:05:030:05:05

0:05:230:05:27

0:05:270:05:33

-The competitions at the Show

-started on Sunday evening...

0:05:540:05:58

-..with a speed-shearing contest...

0:05:580:06:01

-..which is different

-to what usually happens.

0:06:010:06:04

-One lamb is sheared

-as quickly as possible.

0:06:050:06:07

-There was a lot of excitement

-and laughter.

0:06:070:06:11

-Timekeepers ready,

-judges ready, competitors go!

0:06:120:06:15

-We class this as a sport.

-The lads are very fit.

0:06:150:06:19

-They say that shearing 250 sheep

-is the same as running a marathon.

0:06:190:06:23

-These lads shear

-four to five hundred sheep a day...

0:06:240:06:27

-..every day of the week,

-which is even more.

0:06:270:06:30

-Ian's on to the last sheep, which

-should be sheared in one minute.

0:06:300:06:35

-It's easy to build up the excitement

-at the Show.

0:06:350:06:39

-The crowd know what they want,

-and even if they don't...

0:06:410:06:44

-..they get pulled into the

-excitement and make some noise.

0:06:440:06:48

-As a commentator, it's easy

-to create the atmosphere.

0:06:480:06:52

-It's one of the best in the world.

0:06:520:06:54

-It's one of the best in the world.

-

-Who is fastest?

0:06:540:06:55

-I think Richard Jones.

-But who will win?

0:06:560:06:59

-Richard, Alwyn, Richard, Richard...

0:07:000:07:02

-..yes, Richard presses the red

-button ahead of Alwyn Manzini.

0:07:020:07:06

-Well, well, well.

0:07:070:07:08

-Time is important...

0:07:080:07:10

-..but the shearing

-also has to be clean too.

0:07:110:07:15

-A team of judges sits at the front

-looking for second cuts...

0:07:150:07:19

-..where the wool is cut twice.

0:07:190:07:21

-Another team is at the rear to judge

-the sheep after it's been sheared.

0:07:210:07:26

-The quickest, but cleanest, wins.

0:07:270:07:31

-It's an exciting week for us.

0:07:320:07:35

-I'm sure we'll select a good team

-to compete at world events.

0:07:350:07:39

-We'll see who rises to the top

-later in the day.

0:07:400:07:43

-The Welsh Championship is at stake.

0:07:440:07:46

-Not many sheep remain

-for Gareth Daniel, Gwion Evans...

0:07:460:07:49

-..Ian Jones, Kevin Williams,

-Richard Jones.

0:07:500:07:52

-Matthew Evans is in the lead.

0:07:520:07:54

-He's in with 19 and I'm sure

-he will have two beauties left.

0:07:540:07:58

-Gareth Daniel is on his 18th sheep.

0:07:580:08:02

-Matthew Evans is on his 19th.

0:08:020:08:05

-Just look at him. He hasn't slowed

-from the first to the last sheep.

0:08:050:08:10

-He's getting faster

-as the others try to catch up.

0:08:100:08:13

-Richard Jones

-goes in for his 18th sheep.

0:08:140:08:18

-Who is closest to Matthew Evans?

0:08:180:08:21

-Ian Jones, Gwion Evans and

-Richard Jones try their very best.

0:08:210:08:25

-Matthew Evans

-finishes his 19th sheep.

0:08:250:08:28

-He's in for his final sheep.

0:08:280:08:30

-Jack Fagan says one more. Do your

-best because that's your lot.

0:08:300:08:34

-You don't have a choice!

-It will mean so much to him.

0:08:340:08:38

-A changing of the guard in the

-Welsh Championships looks likely.

0:08:380:08:42

-We shall see.

-He has certainly been very fast.

0:08:430:08:45

-My money is on Matthew Evans

-at the moment.

0:08:450:08:48

-He will be delighted that the

-final sheep is a bit smaller.

0:08:480:08:52

-He is really motoring now.

0:08:530:08:56

-This is Gareth Daniel

-but we go back to Matthew Evans.

0:08:560:09:00

-He only has three or four

-more swipes to make.

0:09:000:09:03

-One around the corner

-before he presses the red button.

0:09:030:09:07

-Matthew Evans from Gower,

-a nephew of Nicky Beynon.

0:09:070:09:10

-Matthew Evans finishes first

-and he has sheared beautifully.

0:09:110:09:14

-Gwion Evans finishes

-just behind him.

0:09:140:09:17

-Amazing!

0:09:170:09:18

-Ladies and gentlemen!

0:09:190:09:22

-The winner

-and the Champion Shearer of Wales...

0:09:220:09:26

-..is Ian Jones!

0:09:280:09:35

-Fair play to Ian Jones.

0:09:370:09:39

-He doesn't usually show much emotion

-but he's worked so hard for this.

0:09:400:09:45

-He deserves all the plaudits.

0:09:450:09:47

-We've had a great week.

0:09:550:09:57

-This year, we brought

-Holsteins and Jerseys...

0:09:570:10:00

-..and we've won both championships.

0:10:010:10:03

-Yesterday was a very successful day

-for Iwan Morgan of Nantybwla farm.

0:10:050:10:09

-His father, Edward,

-won the Jersey Championship...

0:10:090:10:13

-..and Iwan took the prize

-in the Holstein Championship.

0:10:130:10:17

-My father and I farm at home

-and he delights on the Jerseys.

0:10:180:10:22

-We like both breeds

-and we're very proud of them all.

0:10:230:10:27

-Today, the champions of every breed

-go up against each other.

0:10:290:10:33

-Holstein, Jersey, Ayrshire,

-Brown Swiss and the Shorthorn.

0:10:330:10:37

-I hope that I win,

-but if not, I hope he does.

0:10:370:10:41

-For me, this is the Blue Riband

-for the dairy cows...

0:10:430:10:47

-..the Dairy Champion class.

0:10:470:10:49

-Tom, these cows are full of milk

-and they have to walk in this heat.

0:10:500:10:55

-The standard

-is extraordinarily high.

0:10:550:10:58

-It's now the best summer show

-in Europe.

0:10:590:11:05

-In the world, Tom, in the world.

0:11:050:11:06

-In the world, Tom, in the world.

-

-Winning this really means something.

0:11:060:11:08

-The judge is John Gribbon.

0:11:090:11:11

-He has forgotten more about dairy

-cows than others have ever known.

0:11:120:11:16

-His late father, David Gribbon,

-was the same.

0:11:160:11:20

-A father and son are competing

-against each other.

0:11:200:11:23

-One with the Jersey,

-the other with the Holstein.

0:11:240:11:27

-The Ayrshire from Stuart and

-Phil Williams is being inspected.

0:11:270:11:33

-I'm not sure it looks very balanced

-in the hindquarters.

0:11:340:11:38

-I totally agree.

0:11:380:11:40

-There is a weakness

-in the bottom left quarter.

0:11:400:11:42

-The Shorthorn from Cross Hands

-is a good animal.

0:11:460:11:49

-It looks better

-than it did yesterday.

0:11:500:11:52

-You're absolutely right.

0:11:520:11:54

-The Brown Swiss is in front of us.

0:11:550:11:57

-They've been affected by the fact

-there weren't as many competitors...

0:11:580:12:02

-..in the class as they would like.

0:12:020:12:04

-To be fair, they still put in

-as much effort as the others.

0:12:050:12:08

-It's important that they are here.

0:12:090:12:11

-This Holstein is quite a cow.

0:12:120:12:15

-She's also a young cow.

0:12:150:12:17

-She moves easily

-and carries her milk so strongly.

0:12:180:12:22

-Just look at the veins,

-all the veins across the udder.

0:12:230:12:28

-The strength at the front as well

-as the full-bodied, balanced rear.

0:12:280:12:33

-She carries her milk high and wide.

0:12:330:12:36

-Her udders are solid

-at the back and front.

0:12:360:12:39

-Now then, folks, it won't be long

-before John starts his adjudication.

0:12:420:12:46

-We will then be able to tell you

-who is the Champion of Champions.

0:12:460:12:52

-It's my pleasure to tell you the

-Champion at the Royal Welsh Show.

0:12:520:12:58

-It could be the old boy

-with the Jersey.

0:12:590:13:03

-It could be the young boy

-with the Holstein.

0:13:030:13:06

-Father and son.

0:13:060:13:07

-But today, I have to go for...

0:13:080:13:11

-..this black and white cow

-in the middle.

0:13:130:13:17

-It's the Holstein.

0:13:170:13:19

-She's a lovely cow.

0:13:200:13:22

-The father gets the reserve

-as his son wins the Championship.

0:13:230:13:27

-The Holstein and Jersey

-were both in there.

0:13:280:13:33

-It's the best possible result.

0:13:330:13:35

-It's like Wales

-winning the World Cup!

0:13:360:13:39

-In the next part of the programme...

0:13:480:13:50

-..the Lloyd Family Award

-in the Sheep Ring...

0:13:510:13:53

-..the YFC flex their muscles...

0:13:530:13:56

-..and is there another goat?

-My name is Milwyn Davies.

0:14:220:14:25

-I judged the Welsh Hill

-Speckled Face Sheep on Monday.

0:14:250:14:28

-They were worth judging...

0:14:300:14:32

-..both the exhibitors and the

-farmers who prepared the animals.

0:14:320:14:36

-I have judged

-in several small shows.

0:14:360:14:39

-This is the first time I've judged

-at the Royal Welsh Show.

0:14:390:14:42

-It's been an immense pleasure.

0:14:430:14:44

-I've enjoyed every minute of it.

0:14:450:14:46

-I come to the Show to socialize

-and make new friends.

0:14:480:14:51

-I see all kinds of people.

0:14:510:14:53

-I also see how other people

-work so hard with their animals.

0:14:530:14:57

-In the evenings,

-I'll go out for a few pints.

0:14:580:15:02

-We tell each other some stories,

-and so on.

0:15:020:15:05

-Everyone loves it.

-You can't beat it.

0:15:060:15:09

-We've reached one of the week's

-big competitions.

0:15:200:15:24

-It's the Lloyd Family Award for the

-best trio from any specific breed.

0:15:240:15:30

-I'm joined by Rheinallt and

-Bryn Jones from Ceiro, Ponterwyd.

0:15:310:15:35

-You've competed in the past. Tell

-us a little about this competition.

0:15:350:15:40

-It's a trio competition.

0:15:410:15:43

-The judge has chosen three animals

-to come out from each section.

0:15:440:15:48

-Usually a ewe lamb,

-ram lamb and ewe yearling.

0:15:490:15:52

-In this competition, all three don't

-need to come from the same flock.

0:15:530:15:58

-It's harder

-when different flocks mix.

0:15:580:16:01

-Looking at them, the farmers

-and judges have done a good job.

0:16:030:16:07

-There are lots of

-consistent groups here.

0:16:070:16:10

-The judge is going

-through his paces now.

0:16:100:16:13

-Russell Davies from Efailwen,

-Clunderwen, Pembrokeshire.

0:16:140:16:18

-What will he be looking for?

0:16:180:16:20

-You can see

-he's looking at the shoulder.

0:16:210:16:24

-He wants to make sure

-the shoulders are good.

0:16:240:16:27

-You need good width

-to the shoulders.

0:16:270:16:29

-Then when you study the rear end of

-the sheep, they need to be similar.

0:16:300:16:34

-Russell Davies, the judge, has cut

-it down from the original twelve.

0:16:380:16:44

-There are five left.

0:16:440:16:46

-He's going through them now.

0:16:460:16:48

-I'm sure all the competitors

-are now very nervous...

0:16:480:16:51

-..wondering what the judge thinks.

0:16:520:16:54

-Bryn, do you agree

-with the shortlist?

0:16:540:16:57

-Yes, I do.

0:16:570:16:59

-The five trios left

-are a good choice.

0:16:590:17:02

-The Speckled Face trio

-looks very consistent.

0:17:020:17:05

-Even the colours match quite well.

-It's a good line-up.

0:17:060:17:10

-He's whittled the shortlist

-down to three.

0:17:120:17:16

-It's getting steadily smaller.

0:17:160:17:18

-The Hill Radnor sheep

-have managed to survive the cut...

0:17:180:17:22

-..along with the

-Black Welsh Mountain sheep...

0:17:230:17:26

-..and the

-Welsh Mountain (pedigree) sheep.

0:17:260:17:29

-This looks a very close competition.

0:17:290:17:33

-The judge is ready

-to make his decision.

0:17:350:17:38

-He's just walking around

-to make sure of it.

0:17:390:17:43

-Once you've made a decision,

-it's best not to rethink it!

0:17:430:17:47

-The exhibitors are still striving

-to show their animals at their best.

0:17:500:17:56

-He's making them wait!

0:17:590:18:01

-He really is.

0:18:010:18:02

-They really are nervous now.

0:18:030:18:04

-They've come very close.

-It would be a pity not to get it.

0:18:050:18:08

-There we go. The Hill Radnor sheep

-have taken the prize.

0:18:080:18:14

-It was a strong competition.

0:18:160:18:18

-It was a real challenge

-for the judge.

0:18:190:18:21

-It's now time to celebrate.

0:18:220:18:24

-The Lloyd Family Award

-goes to the Hill Radnor Sheep.

0:18:260:18:32

-Many congratulations.

0:18:320:18:33

-Many congratulations.

-

-Thank you.

0:18:330:18:34

-Thank you.

0:18:340:18:34

-What does it mean to win

-the Lloyd Family Award?

0:18:350:18:38

-It's fantastic.

0:18:380:18:39

-You work so hard.

-It's the icing on the cake.

0:18:400:18:44

-For those who don't know who you

-are, tell us where you're from.

0:18:440:18:47

-My name is Katie. I'm exhibiting

-for Jones and Hovers today.

0:18:480:18:52

-Congratulations

-on the Lloyd Family Award.

0:18:550:18:57

-The battle between YFC clubs

-continues throughout the Show.

0:19:060:19:09

-One of the most popular competitions

-is the tug of war.

0:19:100:19:13

-Who will win?

0:19:130:19:15

-It's equal in both battles.

0:19:270:19:30

-It's 1-1. It all comes down

-to the final pull.

0:19:300:19:34

-Here we go. Who's got it?

0:19:360:19:38

-That was strong from both sides.

0:19:380:19:40

-They've lost their grip!

0:19:410:19:42

-Meirionnydd are low down,

-they need to raise their legs.

0:19:440:19:48

-Meirionnydd have been warned.

0:19:490:19:51

-They touched the floor.

0:19:510:19:52

-Meirionnydd are going to take it!

0:19:540:19:56

-Oh!

0:19:570:19:58

-Oh, no, no, no, no!

0:20:000:20:01

-What's happened?

0:20:010:20:03

-What's happened?

0:20:030:20:04

-The ref has given it

-to Pembrokeshire.

0:20:050:20:07

-There were too many

-people on the floor.

0:20:070:20:10

-That was so close.

0:20:100:20:13

-They had been warned.

0:20:130:20:15

-Yes, they had. They did too much.

0:20:150:20:17

-Look at the lads' faces!

0:20:180:20:19

-They're worthy winners.

0:20:200:20:22

-The battle continues

-with the rugby sevens.

0:20:240:20:26

-It's

-Carmarthenshire vs Brecknockshire.

0:20:270:20:30

-Dyddgu Hywel joins me.

-Brecknock have looked strong.

0:20:330:20:37

-Yes, I think Brecknock are taking

-advantage of the small errors...

0:20:390:20:43

-..that Carmarthenshire

-are making unfortunately.

0:20:430:20:47

-Carmarthenshire work hard as a team.

0:20:470:20:50

-It's two against one.

-They should score.

0:21:010:21:03

-That's very good.

0:21:040:21:06

-Ben Thomas scored.

0:21:060:21:08

-Owain Thomas scored.

0:21:110:21:13

-He used his strength

-and good footwork. It was fantastic.

0:21:130:21:17

-Unfortunately, it's too late.

0:21:190:21:21

-There we go. Brecknock have won

-the rugby sevens at the Show.

0:21:240:21:30

-Brecknock 26-19 Carmarthenshire

-was the final score.

0:21:300:21:33

-How are you, Iwan?

0:21:350:21:36

-Congratulations. How does it feel

-to win at the Royal Welsh?

0:21:370:21:40

-Hot. No, it was a good game, really.

0:21:410:21:44

-It's nice to win.

-We've won three times before.

0:21:440:21:47

-Ceredigion have beaten us

-the last two years. That was nice.

0:21:480:21:51

-The old goats

-never get to sit centre stage.

0:22:040:22:07

-For some like Aeron Edwards

-there are no creatures like them.

0:22:080:22:11

-They need a lot of care and

-attention. It's a real challenge.

0:22:130:22:16

-It's a challenge to get everything

-right for me personally.

0:22:170:22:20

-Because I keep Anglo Nubians,

-the head has to be right.

0:22:200:22:24

-The body and the udder

-need to be right.

0:22:240:22:27

-But the billy goat

-has plenty of filthy habits.

0:22:310:22:34

-They turn their heads and pee all

-over their faces and beards.

0:22:360:22:39

-The wetter and smellier they are,

-the better.

0:22:390:22:42

-You'd need gloves to handle them.

-Definitely gloves and a shower.

0:22:420:22:48

-Even though Aeron won a prize...

0:22:490:22:51

-What have you won?

0:22:510:22:53

-What have you won?

-

-Best of breed.

0:22:530:22:55

-The Supreme Championship

-went to the British Alpine goat...

0:22:560:23:00

-..owned by Mrs and Miss

-T & M Ogborne from Bristol.

0:23:010:23:05

-Join us after the break

-for the day's big Championship.

0:23:070:23:12

-If you like a bit of horsepower...

0:23:120:23:14

-..the Main Ring on Wednesday

-afternoon is where you need to be!

0:24:120:24:16

-Welcome back.

0:24:280:24:29

-It's starting to cool down here

-and the crowds are heading home.

0:24:300:24:34

-But the horses entertained us all

-during the afternoon.

0:24:340:24:38

-The crowds

-were whipped into a frenzy...

0:24:380:24:40

-..as the horses

-galloped around the ring.

0:24:410:24:43

-Last year, Dorian Lloyd,

-the blacksmith from Llanfechain...

0:24:580:25:02

-..made headlines as he won

-the Triple Crown with the Cobs...

0:25:030:25:07

-..and

-the George Prince of Wales Cup.

0:25:070:25:09

-How he will get on this year,

-I wonder?

0:25:100:25:13

-The top class has arrived

-in the Main Ring.

0:25:190:25:23

-That's why people are queuing

-to get into the grandstand...

0:25:240:25:29

-..and have been for hours.

0:25:290:25:31

-These are Welsh Cobs

-and these are the older stallions...

0:25:310:25:35

-..over eight years old.

0:25:350:25:37

-It's quite a sight

-and a great atmosphere.

0:25:370:25:41

-Yes, indeed. Every year,

-this is many people's highlight.

0:25:410:25:45

-Some people from West Wales

-only come out three times a year...

0:25:450:25:50

-..to the Lampeter Show, Glanusk Show

-and the pinnacle, the Royal Welsh.

0:25:500:25:56

-Arwyn Hughes, the judge...

0:25:570:25:59

-..has been building to this moment

-on Wednesday afternoon.

0:25:590:26:03

-We will be enjoying

-this competition.

0:26:030:26:07

-The ring is almost full already.

0:26:070:26:10

-They just keep on coming.

0:26:100:26:12

-This is Trefaes Black Flyer...

0:26:260:26:29

-..from Rhydeilian Stud.

0:26:290:26:31

-He's being examined at the moment.

0:26:320:26:34

-The horse is from Anglesey.

0:26:350:26:37

-I think they're based

-in Llanfair PG.

0:26:370:26:39

-That's where Rhydeilian is, yes.

0:26:390:26:42

-Trefaes is a bit closer to us here,

-of course.

0:26:420:26:45

-Trefaes Black Flyer is currently

-in first place in this class...

0:26:450:26:50

-..for stallions

-over eight years of age.

0:26:500:26:53

-Mandy Davies

-is the owner of Tregare Cymro.

0:26:550:26:58

-The exhibitor is David Gardiner.

0:26:580:27:00

-I think this horse

-was second here last year.

0:27:010:27:04

-Fourways Solo with John Haywood.

0:27:060:27:08

-Sired by Llanarth Solo

-and out of Fourways Jade.

0:27:080:27:12

-The horse is owned

-by Mr John Haywood.

0:27:120:27:16

-This is Dorian Lloyd from

-Llanfechain...

0:27:170:27:20

-..with Haighmoor Orient Express.

0:27:210:27:23

-He's the son

-of Derwen Railway Express...

0:27:230:27:26

-..who was Reserve Champion

-last year.

0:27:260:27:29

-Dorian Lloyd, a blacksmith,

-owns him at present.

0:27:290:27:33

-It's interesting

-what Arwyn Hughes is thinking.

0:27:350:27:39

-The stallion from Anglesey

-is at the top.

0:27:400:27:44

-The prize has gone to Anglesey.

0:27:510:27:53

-Alun Hughes. Trefaes Black Flyer.

0:27:540:27:59

-Many congratulations

-to Trefaes Black Flyer...

0:28:000:28:03

-..from Rhydeilian Stud.

0:28:030:28:06

-We're looking

-at the Welsh Cob Championship.

0:28:130:28:16

-We're looking at the stallions.

-There are four in this competition.

0:28:160:28:20

-These are the best from the two

-classes of stallions we've seen.

0:28:210:28:26

-I think he's made his mind up.

0:28:280:28:29

-There's the chief steward, Aled.

0:28:300:28:32

-He's looking at him.

0:28:330:28:34

-I think it will be the

-senior stallion today, we'll see.

0:28:350:28:39

-You're right.

0:28:390:28:41

-There it is.

0:28:410:28:42

-Trefaes Black Flyer.

0:28:420:28:44

-Alun Hughes gets another

-rosette for Trefaes Black Flyer...

0:28:490:28:56

-..from the Rhydeilian stud.

0:28:560:28:58

-We've got to see the young winner,

-Cascob Brenin Dafydd.

0:29:000:29:06

-He's come back in to compete

-for the Male Championship.

0:29:060:29:10

-Here he is.

0:29:120:29:13

-He's come to a decision.

0:29:210:29:23

-He's speaking to the steward.

0:29:230:29:25

-I think it might be Black Fyer.

0:29:250:29:28

-Oh! Brenin Dafydd! He is the king.

0:29:310:29:34

-He came through

-the other two stallions.

0:29:340:29:38

-Cascob Brenin Dafydd

-owned by Mrs Philippa Owens...

0:29:380:29:42

-..has won this championship

-for Welsh Cob males.

0:29:430:29:48

-This is the Supreme Championship.

0:29:530:29:55

-This is the important competition.

0:29:560:29:58

-This is the line-up...

0:29:590:30:01

-..for the Section D Championship.

0:30:010:30:05

-The question is...

0:30:050:30:06

-..how will they be placed

-in the Championship?

0:30:060:30:10

-Where will Arwyn Hughes

-point his hat?

0:30:110:30:14

-Philippa Owens.

0:30:230:30:24

-Cascob Brenin Dafydd!

0:30:250:30:26

-He's literally the king this year.

0:30:270:30:29

-The George Prince of Wales Cup goes

-to Philippa Owens from Cascob Stud.

0:30:310:30:35

-This is the Champion Welsh Cob,

-Cascob Brenin Dafydd.

0:30:360:30:39

-He's owned by Philippa Owens.

0:30:410:30:44

-Remember that name,

-he's quite a king.

0:30:440:30:47

-There were five animals vying

-for the Supreme Championship.

0:31:090:31:13

-The judges chose the Landrace sow

-which had already proved herself.

0:31:140:31:18

-She stood out in yesterday's

-competitions.

0:31:190:31:22

-I think she still stands out today

-despite the hot weather.

0:31:240:31:28

-I chatted with the judge earlier.

0:31:280:31:32

-His reasoning was that this sow...

0:31:320:31:35

-..obviously shows that she

-has produced and raised pigs.

0:31:350:31:41

-He thought that this was

-a very special Welsh pig.

0:31:410:31:45

-We've had a fantastic day.

0:31:470:31:49

-It was a fierce competition...

0:31:500:31:52

-..and there were five of us

-out there as breed champions.

0:31:530:31:57

-We were chosen as the winner.

0:31:570:32:00

-Yes!

0:32:010:32:02

-Yes!

-

-It's twenty years since we last won.

0:32:020:32:04

-It's not often you can claim

-to be the best so we're very happy.

0:32:040:32:09

-The Pairs Championship was won by...

0:32:150:32:18

-..Huw and Ela Roberts

-from Oinc Oink in Llithfaen.

0:32:180:32:22

-They had a pair of Welsh pigs

-born in January...

0:32:220:32:27

-..which were excellent animals.

0:32:270:32:30

-I agree 100% because they matched

-each other completely.

0:32:300:32:34

-We've had a very successful

-afternoon.

0:32:370:32:40

-We won the Boar Championship,

-Reserve Champion in Show...

0:32:400:32:44

-..and we also won

-the Pairs Championship.

0:32:440:32:47

-We are tremendously happy.

0:32:480:32:50

-It's a great boost to the awareness

-of our pigs throughout Wales.

0:32:510:32:57

-I hope that helps...

0:32:580:33:00

-..with the selling of the pigs

-and the meat over the next year.

0:33:000:33:06

-Every Championship today

-has stayed in Wales.

0:33:100:33:16

-For judges from deepest,

-darkest England...

0:33:160:33:20

-..to come here and choose

-not only Welsh pigs...

0:33:200:33:23

-..but pigs which have been bred

-in Wales, is very important.

0:33:240:33:28

-Here in the Sheep Ring...

0:33:480:33:50

-..we've started on the

-championship competitions.

0:33:500:33:54

-Our first is Native Upland Breed.

0:33:540:33:58

-I'm joined by Jane Thomas

-of Bryngwyn farm, Whitland.

0:33:580:34:03

-Welcome.

0:34:030:34:03

-Welcome.

-

-Thank you.

0:34:030:34:04

-Are you ready for this afternoon?

0:34:050:34:07

-I think it's going

-to be quite a sight.

0:34:080:34:10

-The standard of competition

-is very high.

0:34:100:34:14

-We started with 16 sheep

-in the ring.

0:34:150:34:17

-We are now down to five.

0:34:180:34:20

-Jane, you know the judge.

-Do you know which he'll choose?

0:34:200:34:23

-To be honest,

-he's made his decision.

0:34:240:34:26

-It looks to me

-as though he likes Cheviots.

0:34:260:34:29

-He's also got

-the Kerry Hill sheep in.

0:34:290:34:32

-They are also large sheep. He's

-kept the Speckled Face sheep too.

0:34:320:34:36

-I think he's already decided.

0:34:370:34:39

-He's made his decision.

-He didn't mess around.

0:34:390:34:43

-He clearly knows his mind.

0:34:430:34:46

-The North Country Cheviot

-has taken it.

0:34:460:34:52

-This is the

-Continental Championship.

0:34:560:34:59

-Herbie Kennedy

-has whittled them down quickly.

0:34:590:35:02

-Four sheep have made his shortlist.

0:35:020:35:04

-The Charollais, the Rouge,

-the Blue Texel and the Texel.

0:35:040:35:08

-They're all fantastic, aren't they?

0:35:080:35:11

-This really is the best

-of what a show is.

0:35:120:35:15

-You can see the creme de la creme

-of the continental breeds here.

0:35:150:35:19

-I think that a decision is close.

0:35:200:35:23

-He's decided.

0:35:230:35:25

-He's decided on the...

0:35:250:35:27

-He's decided on the...

-

-..Texel.

0:35:270:35:28

-It's owned by Giles Hardman from

-Farm Mill Blues Gloucestershire.

0:35:280:35:33

-We've moved on to the

-Native Lowland Breed Championship.

0:35:360:35:42

-The judge has been

-going through them...

0:35:420:35:45

-He's picked the Suffolk!

0:35:450:35:47

-Sinnett & Sons

-have taken the Championship.

0:35:490:35:53

-That was the final Championship

-before the Supreme Championship.

0:35:540:36:00

-Here we are in the Sheep Ring

-for Wednesday afternoon's highlight.

0:36:040:36:08

-We're choosing the Supreme Champion.

0:36:080:36:12

-That is the task for the judge

-this afternoon.

0:36:120:36:15

-He's got a lot of weight

-on his shoulders.

0:36:160:36:18

-Fair play to him,

-he's done a very good job.

0:36:190:36:22

-He's looked at everything.

-He's made his decisions.

0:36:220:36:25

-He's made another one!

0:36:250:36:27

-He's made another one!

-

-It's the Suffolk!

0:36:270:36:28

-The Suffolks have taken it.

0:36:280:36:30

-Sinnett & Sons from Stockton-On-Teme

-are the winners.

0:36:320:36:37

-John Sinnett, many congratulations.

0:36:400:36:43

-John Sinnett, many congratulations.

-

-Thank you very much.

0:36:430:36:44

-John Sinnett, many congratulations.

0:36:440:36:44

-You won the breed,

-you won the Lowland Championship.

0:36:440:36:47

-You said this was the one that

-counted. Indeed, she performed.

0:36:470:36:51

-She's just one in a million.

-You don't get many like this.

0:36:510:36:54

-It's nice to go all the way.

0:36:540:36:56

-We've come close, we've won it

-before. It's special, this one.

0:36:560:37:00

-Congratulations.

0:37:000:37:01

-In the final part...

-Hello, my name is Jonah and today,

-I'm going around the Show...

0:37:410:37:46

-..doing what I want to do.

0:37:470:37:49

-I'm Noah. Yo!

0:37:490:37:51

-I'm Ela. Hiya!

0:37:520:37:53

-I'm Davey. Yo!

0:37:540:37:56

-First of all,

-we're going on the trampoline.

0:37:560:37:59

-I love bouncing and it's very easy.

0:37:590:38:01

-Off we go!

0:38:020:38:04

-We've been bouncing under this sun

-and we've been sweating!

0:38:120:38:16

-Davey, what do you want to do?

0:38:160:38:18

-I want a burger and water.

0:38:180:38:21

-There is a lot of queueing

-at the Royal Welsh.

0:38:260:38:30

-I'm hungry.

0:38:300:38:32

-I'm full!

0:38:380:38:39

-I'm going to see the raptors!

0:38:390:38:41

-What?

0:38:420:38:43

-What?

0:38:430:38:44

-Birds of prey!

0:38:440:38:46

-This is Igglepiggle, a small owl.

0:38:500:38:53

-Twit-twoo!

0:38:530:38:55

-Ela, what do you want to do?

0:38:560:38:58

-Ela, what do you want to do?

-

-Shop!

0:38:580:38:59

-We have bought these.

0:39:060:39:08

-I love the Royal Welsh.

-I'll come here again.

0:39:150:39:18

-Yes, there's something for everyone

-at the Royal Welsh Showground.

0:39:190:39:23

-This morning in the Cattle Ring...

0:39:240:39:27

-..the Holsteins came out on top

-in the individual competitions...

0:39:270:39:32

-..but who will win the FitzHugh

-and the Team of Five?

0:39:320:39:35

-Tom, Ty Mawr, and I are

-looking forward to the FitzHugh...

0:39:360:39:40

-..for the best pair of dairy cows.

0:39:400:39:46

-Tom?

0:39:460:39:47

-This is quite a challenge.

0:39:470:39:49

-There are some excellent pairs

-in the ring.

0:39:490:39:52

-The two Ayrshires are very good.

0:39:520:39:54

-They're owned by

-Phil and Stuart Williams...

0:39:550:39:59

-..and they're from the Willhome herd

-in Pembrokeshire.

0:39:590:40:03

-How long have they kept Ayrshires?

0:40:030:40:05

-A long time. They have some

-fantastic individual cattle.

0:40:050:40:08

-The two Ayrshires are a very good

-pair to kick off the competition.

0:40:090:40:13

-There are two Jersey cows

-behind the Ayrshires.

0:40:130:40:17

-The father and son team

-appeared in the championship...

0:40:170:40:20

-..but here it's the father

-and daughter-in-law!

0:40:200:40:23

-They won this competition last year.

0:40:250:40:28

-This is the first time ever

-that the same person...

0:40:280:40:32

-..has exhibited both cows

-for the FitzHugh...

0:40:330:40:36

-..having reared both as well.

0:40:360:40:38

-He deserves praise for that.

0:40:390:40:41

-We can see the two Shorthorns

-coming behind.

0:40:410:40:44

-Simon is showing this cow.

0:40:440:40:47

-I think the other one

-belongs to Gellirodyn.

0:40:470:40:50

-They're the two Shorthorns.

0:40:500:40:52

-The Brown Swiss

-is going past us now.

0:40:530:40:56

-This pair is suffering a little

-from a lack of balance.

0:40:560:40:59

-This breed must be one

-that produces a lot of milk.

0:41:000:41:03

-Oh, yes.

-It's good-quality milk as well.

0:41:030:41:06

-They must be the best two Ayrshires

-I've seen in a while.

0:41:070:41:10

-They'll be good competition

-for the two Holsteins.

0:41:100:41:14

-I've been wrong once before

-this morning about the Jerseys...

0:41:140:41:18

-..so maybe

-I shouldn't get ahead of myself!

0:41:180:41:21

-The judge goes back, takes a look

-first of all at the Jerseys...

0:41:220:41:26

-..and walks past the Ayrshires

-and comes up behind the Holsteins.

0:41:270:41:32

-In a while, we'll know...

0:41:340:41:38

-The Ayrshires have won it!

0:41:390:41:40

-The Holsteins win the reserve.

0:41:410:41:44

-The Ayrshires

-win the FitzHugh Championship.

0:41:440:41:49

-But which breed won the Team of Five

-for dairy cows?

0:41:490:41:54

-How many are here, Tom? About four?

0:41:550:41:58

-How many are here, Tom? About four?

-

-Four breeds.

0:41:580:41:59

-Unfortunately, the Brown Swiss

-haven't got a team.

0:41:590:42:02

-It's a good competition

-to end the morning of competing.

0:42:020:42:06

-We can see the Jerseys passing now.

0:42:070:42:08

-They've walked a lot already

-this morning.

0:42:100:42:13

-But they're still at their best.

0:42:130:42:15

-Quite a few of these...

0:42:150:42:17

-..competed as pairs

-and individual entries earlier.

0:42:170:42:20

-The Shorthorns

-come after the Jerseys.

0:42:220:42:24

-They aren't as consistent.

0:42:240:42:26

-There is a heifer in with the cows.

0:42:270:42:29

-That always makes it more difficult

-to get the right balance.

0:42:300:42:35

-Here are the Holsteins. They have

-a good representation of cattle.

0:42:360:42:41

-Yes, the team is well balanced.

0:42:420:42:46

-They go well together

-in terms of size.

0:42:460:42:50

-They have beautiful udders,

-full of milk.

0:42:500:42:54

-They move well too.

-It's nice to see such a good team.

0:42:540:42:58

-The Ayrshires will be up next.

0:42:580:43:02

-I've been supporting the Ayrshires

-quite a lot this morning.

0:43:020:43:05

-They may have lost their way

-once or twice.

0:43:050:43:08

-I do believe the Ayrshires

-here this year...

0:43:090:43:12

-..are better than what

-we've seen here for a few years.

0:43:120:43:16

-The judge has pulled them in.

0:43:160:43:19

-He's going down

-to see them from behind.

0:43:190:43:21

-The Holsteins have taken the prize.

0:43:220:43:24

-The Ayrshires are second.

0:43:240:43:26

-I agree completely with the judge.

0:43:260:43:29

-There we go, the Holsteins take the

-FitzHugh Team of Five Championship.

0:43:290:43:34

-The Ayreshire cattle

-won Reserve Champion.

0:43:340:43:37

-Congratulations to them all.

0:43:370:43:40

-HAKA

0:44:160:44:18

-Are we ready to rumble?

0:44:260:44:28

-And off we go, the first lamb

-is out for these four chaps.

0:44:300:44:34

-This is the big test

-and the day's highlight.

0:44:350:44:37

-John Kirkpatrick and Rowland Smith

-challenging Wales' new team...

0:44:370:44:41

-..Ian Jones and Gwion Evans.

0:44:410:44:44

-It's the big test, can they keep

-these energy levels up?

0:44:440:44:48

-There are 20 sheep in the pen.

0:44:480:44:51

-They're a bit behind at present.

0:44:510:44:53

-Ian Jones and Gwion Evans together.

0:44:530:44:56

-They're showing the way

-at the minute.

0:44:560:44:59

-He's been your favourite all day...

0:45:000:45:02

-..you've had nothing

-but praise for him.

0:45:020:45:04

-He's rewarding you for that praise,

-Aeron Pughe.

0:45:040:45:07

-There are four lambs

-left in the pen.

0:45:070:45:09

-Ian Jones

-got a little kick there.

0:45:090:45:11

-That's given

-John Kirkpatrick a chance.

0:45:120:45:14

-Ian Jones has caught him up.

0:45:150:45:17

-He's overtaken him.

0:45:170:45:19

-The crowd are on their feet.

0:45:190:45:21

-Ian Jones is a local boy.

0:45:210:45:24

-John is trying to catch him.

0:45:240:45:26

-Ian Jones!

0:45:270:45:31

-John Kirkpatrick is trailing him

-by a second.

0:45:310:45:35

-Who's next? There's nothing between

-one and four.

0:45:350:45:38

-Gwion Evans is from Llansannan.

0:45:380:45:40

-He finishes off and presses red.

0:45:400:45:42

-Rowland Smith, the Kiwi is the last

-to finish. There's no shame in that.

0:45:420:45:46

-Incredible!

0:45:470:45:48

-Ladies and gentlemen...

0:45:490:45:52

-..the winners of the

-Wales vs New Zealand test...

0:45:520:45:57

-..Wales!

0:46:010:46:02

-Well, Owen Griffiths...

0:46:180:46:21

-..the highlight of the day

-was the George Prince of Wales Cup.

0:46:210:46:25

-How exciting is it to commentate

-on S4C and in the ring generally?

0:46:250:46:30

-You have to consider the history

-to this Cup.

0:46:300:46:33

-It was donated 107 years ago...

0:46:330:46:36

-...and the Cup is priceless.

0:46:370:46:40

-Many famous names have won this Cup.

0:46:400:46:44

-Mostly studs from Ceredigion,

-the home of the Welsh Cobs.

0:46:440:46:49

-Today, we saw one of the youngest

-ever winners of the Cup.

0:46:500:46:54

-A three-year old colt foal,

-Cascob Brenin Dafydd.

0:46:540:46:57

-He certainly was the king today.

0:46:570:46:59

-What are your hopes for the future?

0:46:590:47:01

-It's my delight, to be honest.

0:47:020:47:04

-I am interested in horses,

-more so than I am in commentating.

0:47:040:47:09

-The horses are the basis

-of my passion.

0:47:090:47:12

-Will you continue to do the job?

0:47:120:47:14

-Will you continue to do the job?

-

-If they keep asking me, I will.

0:47:140:47:16

-Owen, congratulations

-and thanks for the chat.

0:47:160:47:19

-Enjoy as much of the show

-that's left as you can.
