• A SHEEP which was the centre of a 'will we, won't we show her' argie-bargie ended up being the champion of champions at last week's Islay Show, held in the showfield at Bridgend.

  • DESPITE the remnants of Hurricane Bertha threatening to put a stop to proceedings, as it did to Keith Show, Grantown Show went ahead on a surprisingly dry show field which boasted boosted entries in the cattle and sheep lines.

  • Despite somewhat blustery, chilly weather, Peeblesshire Agricultural Society's second year at Nether Horsbrugh, proved a huge success with increased spectators and entries across the board complete with another overall champion of champions accolade for Gordon and David Gray's Ettrick Texel flock from Sunnycroft, Lindean.

  • NUMBERS and quality were well up to standard at a sunny Rothesay Show, where Robert and Paula McAlister from Langalbuinoch took home the champion of champion award for a home-bred Beef Shorthorn bull.

  • Young Stephanie Dick, Mains of Throsk, Stirling, dominated the proceedings at a friendly, well-organised Kinross Show, winning not only three of the individual beef sections, but also the supreme cattle honours.

  • OVERNIGHT RAIN meant that it was treacherous underfoot but blue skies above for most of the show day brought out the crowds to Mid Argyll Show, held as usual at Kilmory, just on the outskirts of Lochgilphead.

  • THE CHANGE of premises didn't hinder Glenkens Show on Saturday, as exhibitor and spectators revelled in the sunshine.

  • Thankfully the majority of the livestock judging was finished before the forecast heavy rain arrived at Orkney's County Show last weekend.

  • North Country Cheviot sheep certainly made their presence at the Black Isle Show, winning not only the coveted inter-breed sheep trophy but also the best in Ross-shire honours - with two different sheep.

  • ARRAN SHOW started with a miserable morning of weather until 11 o'clock when the skies cleared and a glorious day of sunshine covered the ground.
