The champion of champions competition, sponsored by W.R. Simmers of Keith, brings together the cream of award-winning native, continental and commercial cattle in the main ring to compete for the supreme award.

To qualify, all must have stood champion at any of Scotland’s agricultural shows this year.

The last time the champion of champions was held at Keith show was in 2013 when Blelack Giggsey, a 26-month Charolais bull from John Irvine and Son, Inverlochy, Tomintoul, was picked as number one by judge Ted Fox from Wooler in Northumberland.

Judging this year for the Champion of Champions will take place in the main ring from 1.40pm on Monday, August 10 and will be followed by the grand parade of all the winning livestock and horses.
