William Cochran – Best Sow

"In the year 1820 the Cattle Show at Windsor was reported to have attracted a very numerous and respectable attendance. There was a large exhibition of very fine animals; the day was uncommonly fine, and all persons seemed well pleased.

The following men were appointed judges by the society; Mr. James Jenkins, Mr. John Parker, for Windsor; Mr. John Chambers, Mr. Archibald Smith for Newport, and John Elder for Falmouth.

These judges awarded prizes to John Allison of Newport for best fat ox; to William Brown of Newport for the best pair of working oxen; William Weir of Newport for the second best pair; to John Clarke of Windsor for best bull; to William Brown of Newport for the second best bull; to Andrew Inglis of Windsor for the best milch cow; to John Allison of Newport for the second best and for the best ram; to John Parker of Windsor for the best boar; to Charles Leyton of Falmouth for the second best boar; to the Rev. Dr. Cochran of Windsor for the best sow; to George Franklin of Windsor for the second best."
