By Sportsmans Unimog out a Mitchellhill Paparazzi sired ewe, it is a maternal sister to the 7,000gn top price gimmer at the Scottish National sale at Lanark last year. Inter-breed judge, Peter Turnbull, Whitby, said his champion was a fantastic sheep which was very correct and full of character.

The reserve champion rosette went to a home-bred Blackface ewe hogg by a Townshields ram from George and Caroline Watson, Allensgreen.

Bought at Carlisle last year for 12,000gns it has already been inter-breed champion at Ayr show this season.

Reserve continental beef champion was Top Side Isla, a home-bred British Blue heifer from Ross and Elaine Pattinson, Brampton, which was making its seasonal debut having been female and reserve breed champion at last year’s Royal Highland Show.

Linton Priory Millicent, a Beef Shorthorn in-calf heifer by Stonehills Pearls Perfection from the Gordon Brooke Estate, Kelso, lifted the native breed championship having come forward as the any other native breed champion. Native inter-breed champion at the Stars of the Future at Stirling last year on its only other outing, it then stood reserve pedigree beef champion.

The reserve native championship went to Bess of West Edmondsley, a home-bred Highland heifer from L. and L. Braines, Sunderland, which had recently been reserve champion at the Sheffield Highland Fling.
