Greetings from a slightly soggy Royal Welsh Show on the second day of this year’s event. The rain set in early this morning and while at the moment it is dry, we’re expecting a deluge later. This morning sees the dairy judging get underway, with all the breeds on show at 9am, in a few minutes time the commercial cattle get underway and the remaining sheep breeds are judged today too, so there’s plenty going on.
Meanwhile, here are more of yesterday’s sheep results;
Taking the championship in the Pedigree Welsh Mountain section was Brian Roberts with an aged ewe, reserve was Russell Davies with a shearling ewe. Hill Welsh Mountain leader was Enoc Jenkins with an aged tup and reserve was Alan and Mai Jones with an aged ewe.
