The 30th August 2017 saw our Ewe Lamb Show and Sale take place, with prizes being awarded for the top three pens of Texel and Suffolk lambs. Firstly, we would like to thank our judge for the evening, Mr Stephen Etherson, who had the unenvious task of examining the many quality entries presented.
Congratulations must go to Mr John Joe Quigg who was awarded first place for his pen of Texel lambs. Further congratulations must go to Messrs J & J McCloskey who were awarded second prize for their entry and Mr J Armstrong who was awarded third prize.
