MT PLEASANT SHOW MARCH 2007
Fairview Ridge had a very successful day with our senior sire Fairview Ridge Zeus taking out the Champion British Breed Bull ribbon. In second place was our junior bull Fairview Ridge Azimuth with the Reserve Championship. This was the third successive year that Zeus has won a championship broad ribbon at the Mt Pleasant Show.
Another highlight for us was our 10 month old heifer FVR Miss Rosie placing first in the British Breed under 18 month class from a very strong field of 14 entries. This class was the most competitive of the show and the judge saw Miss Rosie as a "clear winner".

COULD THIS BE A FIRST?
How often does an animal win a second Junior Championship at the same show twelve months after the first? At the annual Murray Grey Feature Show held at Mt Pleasant SA in March 2005, Fairview Ridge Zeus was Junior Champion Bull at five months of age and in March 2006 he was awarded the same title again, this time at seventeen months.
