Scottish Winter Fair
The Whiteford family made a welcome return to the Scottish Winter Fair, Ingliston, on Saturday, taking the supreme sheep championship with their Texel sired pair.
Taking the top honours at Scotland’s leading Winter event were a pair of lambs which tipped the scales at 46.5kg apiece and came through as winners of the butchers weight section before being tapped out as overall champions by judge John Campbell, Alnwick.
This pair are sired by the 5000gns tup Procters Rambo bought from the Solway and Tyne sale in 2011. This was the Whiteford family’s first trip to the event since their last win there in 2005.
Taking the lightweight Texel class in the butchers weight lambs was a pair from John Hall and family, with the Halls also taking second in the heavyweight class behind the overall champions.
