Charollais ewe claims Lincoln sheep interbreed

A Charollais shearling ewe from Charles Sercombe, Melton Mowbray, took the interbreed sheep title here at Lincoln this morning under judge John Coultrip, Kent. Mr Sercombe’s champion is one of 250 ewes run in his flock and is by last year’s Royal Welsh intebreed champion Rockvilla Golden Promise and out of a homebred ewe by a Tilton sire.

Taking the reserve award was the Hampshire Down leader, a shearling ewe from Jennifer Atkinson and Davidn Smith’s Kelsey flock. She is by Yarcombe Erroll and out of a homebred ewe from the couple’s 60 ewe flock.
