Locals and tourists alike flooded to Tiree Show at the Rural Centre in Crossapol to enjoy a good day out – just one of many of the Island's busy summer schedule of events.

Supreme champion in the livestock section was Alastair and Iain MacInnes’ cross-bred cattle winner, Katie, a Limousin cross heifer calf. The March-born calf by Claragh Istabraq is out of Ruaig Noel, a home-bred pedigree British Blue cow that won the supreme title here in 2019.

The MacInnes’ of Ruaig Farm, also took the reserve cattle honours with their pure-bred cattle champion, Ringway Riband, a 23-month-old pedigree Limousin heifer bought at Carlisle last year and the foundation of a new herd.

Reserve in the pure-bred cattle was a three-year-old Highland heifer from Emily Armstrong of the Balemartine fold. Her Isla of Balemartine, is sired by Uisage Beatha of Dunach, and will be retained for breeding.

Cattle judge, Eoin Brown of Aoradh Farm, Islay awarded the breeding championship to Dasher, a Limousin cross suckler cow from Kirsteen MacKinnon, Parkhouse, that went on to stand reserve in the cross-bred section. She is by Istabraq.

An umpire had to be called in the sheep lines to make the final decision between the pure and cross sheep champions, with the end result seeing Tiree Gold Bar, a home-bred gimmer from Alasdair MacLean’s Beltex flock take supreme. His gimmer, by Callacrag Dictator and out of a Corstane Currie ewe, was selected by the judge, Andrew Morton, Denny, pipped Ettie MacDonald’s, Achnaba Blackface ewe and Ruaig’s Blue Texel cross ewe lamb, to the post.

As well as the champion Blackie, Ettie MacDonald from Mannal also took the Lachie Druimfraoich Quaich for best Mule sheep with a home-bred Scotch Mule ewe lamb and the trophy for most points in the crofters sheep section.

Keeping it in the family, young Ruairidh MacDonald landed two trophies in the Young Stocksperson section with his own Mule ewe lamb. Callum MacKinnon, Fasgadh, Balinoe secured first place and the Heylipol Farm Cup for the best young handler.

Cross sheep judge, Dougie MacDonald jnr, Baracaldine, gave Coinneach MacKinnon’s Blue Texel cross prime lambs the winning ticket and the DA MacLean Cup.

Horse champion was Lily Larg of Balemartine, won the championship with her Fell pony, Amber.
