Beltex claims the lamb championship

ALFIE Murray was in charge of the placings in the lamb section, and placed a well matched pair of Beltex lambs from Andrew McCutcheon as his Supreme Champion. These grossed £720 and will now be served up in McGraths Farm Shop, Annacloy.

In the reserve spot were a smart pair of Dutch Spotted from Liam Campbell. Derek Hempton, Gortin, snapped these up for a total of £640.

Leading the prices in the lamb ring were a pair of ewe lambs from Adam Donald. Sired by a Suffolk ram, these realised a total of £980 and were purchased by Keith Corrigan, Ballinamallard. The same willing buyer also forked out £960 for a pair of Dutch Spotted ewe lambs from Liam Campbell.

Buyers will be in for a treat at Alfie Murray Butchers, Killyleagh, as they parted with £700 to secure a pair of Badger Faced lambs presented by Clive Richardson, Lisnaskea.
