EIRIAN Jones from Carmarthen is the winner of the 2015 sheep stock-judging competition, winning £250 plus a Texel body warmer and beanie hat.

 

Mr Jones correctly placed all four sheep in the Farmers Guardian stock-judging competition, run in association with the Texel Society.

 

It was judged by renowned Texel breeder Mr John McKerrow, Grougfoot Texels, West Lothian, who explains his winning line-up was as follows: “X - Placed first as showing great breed character, the widest and deepest, well fleshed with a tremendous back end; A - Although longer, this one lacked the character of the previous tup; Y - This one was a long, clean tup but lacked the gigot of the previous two; B - Lacked the length of the other Tups, deeper off his middle, poorer off his legs.

 

Five runners-up will also receive a Texel body warmer and beanie hat. They are: George Allan, East Ayrshire; Casey Campbell, Holmfirth; Milly Hendy, Bristol; Kirree Kermode, Isle of Man; and Ellen Owen, Gwynedd.
