Beating competition from 19 other breeds, the overall supreme sheep title went to Diane Christie, Newtownards with her two-shear Charollais ewe.
This is the fifthteenth time the Christie family have taken the Charollais championship at Balmoral and the fourth time they have secured the inter-breed title.
This year it was with son, Trevor Bell, in the ring with the one-crop Tullyear Krackerjack ewe, out of a Parkgate Hunter sired Beechview ewe.
Bought privately two years ago from George and Jason Booth, Co. Tyrone, it was second in it's class at Balmoral Show and third at the Royal Highland last year.
Part of family's 64-head Charollais flock, with over 23 years of breeding, it's full sister stood behind the champion as reserve female champion at Balmoral this year.
Tapped out by inter-breed judge Derek Steen, Lockerbie, the reserve supreme champion went to the Longwool champion, the Border Leicester from David Mawhinney, Co. Antrim.
Shown by David Fullerton, the three-shear ewe was bought at John Brown's Eldon flock dispersal at the breed's national sale in September, after it secured breed champion at the Royal Highland in the same year.
Mr Mawhinney, who runs the 200-head Rockvilla flock, including 35 Border Leicesters, is also the national chairman of the Charollais society. He has taken the Longwool championship twice over the last year years, last time with a home-bred ewe.
Tapped out as reserve Shortwool champion was the Texel gimmer from Alastair and Jack Gault, Co. Antrim.
The home-bred Baltier Thunderbird daughter, out of a Mullan Photogenic ewe was making it's show debut, handled in the ring by 14-year old Jack.
Mr Gault, who farms 500 ewes, including 30 Texels and 20 Suffolks has secured the Texel championship three times and inter-breed once before at Balmoral.
It was a Perth type Blackface from Ian and Catherine Crawford, Co. Antrim which stood reserve in the Longwool section.
The home-bred three-crop ewe was breed and second reserve inter-breed at Ballymena Show last year and is by a 10,000gns Smith ram.
Making up a flock of 1,100 ewes at home, it was the fifteenth breed championship won by the Crawford family, who have been showing at Balmoral since 1963.
