By Ballyhibben Klass Act and bought as a lamb from breeder, Myfyr Evans, for 4,000gns at the Worcester premier sale,  it was male champion at the show last year and this year went forward as the terminal sire champion.


Judge, Jim Aitken, County Down, said his champion was an excellent example of the breed and was well balanced, well fleshed with a tremendous top and on good legs.



The reserve supreme, also from Yorkshire was the Longwool champion, Nosterfield Lulu 2, a Wensleydale yearling hogg in wool from Ernie Sherwin, Bedale. Home-bred by West End Gerrard, its dam was also inter-breed reserve champion at the 2013 show.
