A cracking line up of sheep forward for the inter-breed judge Jimmy Warnock, Sandilands, saw the supreme overall presented to the champion crossing-type Bluefaced Leicester, a home-bred one-crop ewe from Jamie Pirie, Blarnavaid, Drymen.

Taking centre stage was a daughter of a £12,000 Blarnavaid tup that is shared in partnership with four other flocks. She was reserve inter-breed sheep at Gargunnock.

Mr Warnock who is a former chief sheep steward and chairman of the Royal Highland Show found his reserve in the Charollais champion, a home-bred one-crop ewe from the Ingrams of the Logie Durno and Loanhead flock from Inverurie. She is got by semen from Boyo Vancouver.

Second reserve was the Texel champion from the Campbell brothers’ Cowal flock. Their two-crop ewe is by Hexel Django.
