Spring Lambs

The annual Christmas show and sale of prime lambs had some of the largest entries out to show for many years, with some of the classes having over 12 entries out for Judge Glen Lomax. Thanks goes to our vendors for their hard work in producing lambs for the show and continued support throughout the year. Thanks also goes to our judge today Glen Lomax for his time and expertise. The championship was awarded to GR & A Foy of Conder Green who won class 1, the pen of 5 Lowland Sired Lambs, which went on to make £124 or 264p/kg selling to the judge.
