Ginger MacMoo, a 17-month-old Limousin cross heifer from Jonathan Craggs, Glower Der Him, Sedgefield, ended her 2017 show season on a high, by winning the commercial championship and overall champion of champions, at Glendale Show, on Monday.

The event, which was celebrating it's 125th anniversary at Wooler, saw the heifer by Easgillhead Exterminate, follow on to take all, after an already success show career which saw her take the commercial title at Duns and supreme overall champion of champions at Haddington.

The Allens from Stouphill – Bill and Kate, son Dallas and daughter Ruth – also had plenty to celebrate, when their Aberdeen Angus heifer, Carlhurlie Quorum, lifted the reserve cattle honours. She boasts several prize tickets since being purchased at the Carlhurlie dispersal in December for £3500.

Leading a strong line-up of sheep which this year attracted 90 different sections, was the champion hill-type North Country Cheviot from Norman and David Douglas, Whitehope, Yarrow. Their two-crop ewe, which was bred champion at Teviothead, last year, is by Whitehope Pharaoh, which made £3500 at Lairg.

Local Texel breeder, Ian Murray, East Horton, had to settle with the reserve overall sheep award with his champion winner, a home-bred gimmer by Teiglum Windfall, out of a ewe by Brackenridge Underdog.

Also making their mark, Stuart Craig, Eildon Mains, Melrose, won the Zwartbles section with Craigies Dancer, by Eildon Hill Am Yer Man, and Jimmy Thomson, Kelsocleugh, led the park-type Cheviots with a ewe lamb by Hownam Vavavoom.
