Tilbrook Hat Trick has become the third bull calf in a row by the great cow Cashtiller to top the British spring show and sale. Breeder Gavin Hunter had such confidence in Cashtiller after her first two successes that he hesitated only a moment before selecting the sports term “hat trick”, which means three- in-a-row, as the name for this calf.
Cashtiller is probably the greatest British cow of recent years, sweeping every contest she entered. We also didn’t hesitate in selecting her to anchor our line-up of cows at Traditional Devon. Seven of her calves are already on the ground here in the States and we’re tempted to call one of the bulls: “Grand Slam“. But we couldn’t get around the health restrictions to send him back for the next show….and we wouldn’t want to sell him anyway.
