No fewer than 25 sheep breeds gathered for the non-MV sheep inter-breed at the Great Yorkshire Show, however it was the Bluefaced Leicester that was crowned the supreme.

All eyes were on the one-crop ewe from Hannah Stenton, North Yorkshire. This ewe was bought in as a ewe lamb privately from Tom Willabae and is sired by a James Porter tup which goes back to Carryhouse Jackpot.

Taking home, the reserve honours title was the Kerry Hill breed from Scottish exhibitors from Stuart and Angie Burgess, New Abbey, Dumfries.

Securing this spot was their one-crop ewe, TopSpot Cover Girl, which is sired by a Calcot tup and out of one of the foundation ewes of the flock.
