Just as we start to put the Perth Bull Sales to the back of our memory, the Taking Stock team are heading back up north again.

An early – and I mean early flight out of Gatwick tomorrow morning will ensure we bring you the news, gossip and scandal from the Scottish Winter Fair – well pictures and class judging results anyway!

I’ve got my tip for the overall cattle champion and I’m sure Jonathan has an idea or two as to who will take the sheep championships, but we won’t share those until we know we’re on a winner!

Judging starts at 8.30am so we’ll keep you updated with pictures as and when internet connection allows.

So watch this space………
