As with the beef classes the judges have been busy in the sheep lines too and the first championships have been decided.
Taking the Suffolk title was Sandy Fraser with a ewe lamb, with Robbie Wilson standing reserve with a tup lamb under judge Kenny Mair.
North Country Cheviot champion was a shearling ewe from the Runciman family, with judge Scott Davies picking a two shear tup from the same home as his reserve.
In the Lleyn classes David Alexander found his champion in the McGowan family’s old ram and resevre was J J Kingan with a shearling ewe.
And the Ryeland classes have been decided too, with Susan Bryden being champion with her older tup and Alison Robinson taking reserve with her ewe lamb.
UPDATE: I’m just back from the lines and have found the one result I was missing from this morning’s classes. The Blackface champion was a shearling tup from the Ramsays, with the reserve being a shearling ewe from the Wights of Midlock.
