Familiar faces take Scottish Winter Fair Titles

Leading faces in the primestock show world have just clinched the championships in both the sheep and cattle classes at the Scottish Winter Fair.

Heading up the championship line-up in the cattle lines were Hugh and Lynn Dunlop, Holehouse, Ayr with their Limousin cross steer, Spooks – appropriately named as he was born during an episode of Spooks last year!

Reserve here went to Gavin Scott with another Limousin cross steer, Hong Kong Pooie, which followed Spooks through from the sections classes earlier today.
