No, I’m not referring to the band and their infamous Christmas hits, but prolific primestock sheep exhibitor Robin Slade who’s picked up the championship in both the single and pairs lamb carcass competitions here at the Royal Welsh Winter Fair.

Taking the single championship was an E3L graded Dutch Texel carcass which weighed 21kg dead, having been 37kg alive.

The pairs champions, meanwhile, both graded E2 and both weighed 19,5kg and were also Dutch Texels.

Reserve spot in the singles went to Andrew Bishop with a Beltex x Texel entry which graded E2 and weighed 19,5kg.

And the Bishop family also clinched reserve spot in the pairs competition too, with Andrew’s mother and father Ivy and David Bishop taking the honours here with a pair of Beltex x Beltex cross lambs which weighed 22 and 21.5kg and both graded E3L.
