A ram lamb, Glenpark Galileo ET from Kenny and Janice Preston’s Glenpark Flock in Omagh, lifted the Supreme Champion title at the Irish Beltex Sheep Breeders’ Club Show and Export Sale at Dungannon Farmers’ Mart on Bank Holiday Monday.

The Reserve Show Champion was Matt’s Fanciful, a shearling ewe from Kinawley-based Matthew Burleigh.

The top shearling ram was Derryogue Fidget, from Kilkeel-based Edward and Shirlee Nichol-son’s Derryogue Flock.

Class winner in the ram lambs was the Supreme Champion, Glenpark Galileo ET, and the top shearling ewe was the Reserve Champion, Matt’s Fanciful.

The ewe lamb class winner was Glenkeen Glitter ET from Limavady-based F & J Harbinson’s Glenkeen Flock.

Judge was Michael Oliver, Lisna-crann Beltex, Tullinacurra, County May.

Commenting on his choice of Supreme Champion, Michael said:

“When this ram lamb came into the ring he just looked so smart, demanding attention. He had serious presence and great character.

“My Reserve Champion, Matthew Burleigh’s shearling ewe, was a very nice, powerful ewe, everything I would look for in a breeding Beltex female.”

Commenting on the overall st-andard, Michael added: “This is the third year that I have attended an Irish Club Show and Sale at Dungannon, and whilst the standard has always been very high, I believe this show and sale has been the best to date in terms of quality in all the classes.”

A total of 97 MV Accredited and Scrapie Monitored pedigree sheep were sold under the auspices of the Beltex Sheep Society and the Irish Beltex Sheep Breeders’ Club and the top price on the day was 1550gns that was paid out for Matthew Burleigh’s Reserve Champion, Matt’s

Fanciful, a shearling ewe, with the purchaser being Harvey Keys from Fivemiletown.
