SUFFOLKS were in high demand in the final show and sale organised by the Northern Ireland Branch of the Suffolk Sheep Society which was held in Omagh recently.
An impressive Strathbogie I’m Invincible ram lamb belonging to Lislap breeders Stephanie and William Tait was selected champion by judge Jason Watson and went on to sell for 600gns. The Reserve Champion was taken by Robin McAdoo which later sold in the sale ring for 400gns. William and Stephanie Tait also went on to take the red rosette in the shearling class selling for 520gns.
Killeter Show & Sale, held a week earlier, saw Cookstown breeder Gary McAdoo presenting the champion with his Drimmie Legend sired ram lamb while also taking first in the pairs. Judge Wesley Cousins awarded Mervyn and Lesley Liggett with the Reserve Champion title with Hunter Stewart taking the red rosette in the shearling line-up changing hands for 400gns.
