DONEGAL breeder Andrew Wilson will judge this year’s Suffolk classes at Balmoral Show.
Mr Wilson, of the famed Castleisle flock in Donegal, will have the unenviable task of choosing a winner from a total of five classes before selecting the special prize winners and, of course, the Supreme RUAS champion for 2022.
Judging takes place on Wednesday, May 11, the first day of the four day event, starting at 1pm when Northern Ireland’s leading breeders will again put their best foot forward in presenting another outstanding line-up.
Competition in the Suffolk judging ring is best described as fierce but friendly and this healthy rivalry merely adds to the sense of occasion as local flock owners set their sights on a Royal Ulster Agricultural Society champion rosette.
Balmoral is a major shop window for breeders and potential customers alike, with pedigree flock owners and commercial sheep producers getting a first glimpse of the cream of the 2022 lamb crop, some of which will become available for purchase during the summer selling season.
