I’ve had the first of the judging results from today’s Northern Irish Texel show and sale at Ballymena and the shearling ewe and shearling ram classes have been decided so far.
In the shearling ewes the winner was a Gruig Outlaw daughter from J and R Currie’s Tullagh flock. This one CJT100048 is out of a Castlecairn Keltic Star daughter.
Second in this class was one from the Fairywater flock of A Fyffe. This was FAO1000033, an ET bred Cornerstone Isaac daughter out of a dam by Knock Impulse.
And in third was a Forkins O Driscoll daughter from Nigel Ross’ Glenross flock. She is out of a dam by Fairmount Landmark.
Shearling ram honours went to J and A Young’s Kilrail House flok with one by Haddo Oscar out of a dam by Brague I O U.
Second place was won by Corbo Rascal from Adrian Liggett. He is a Ballybrooney P J son out of a dam by Clonallon Klass.
Third place her went to Springhill Rock Solid from J T Foster. This is a Springhill Outlook son out of a dam by Mossvale Norbrook.
