The dairy champion was the Holstein, five-year-old Cauldcoats Samurai Molly 2 from Donald Laird, Pathhead, Midlothian. Previous wins for Molly included a championship at Livescot 2019 and a second prize at last year’s Royal Highland Show.

The poultry winner was Betty, a seven-month-old Silver Pencilled Wyandotte bantam from Amanda Slater, Bixter in Shetland.
