The Scottish National Fatstock Club’s LiveScot event once again proved a great success, with around 3000 people turning out to see a top quality show of prime sheep and cattle.
Leading the way in the cattle section – judged by Alister Vance – was the heavy heifer, Price Tag, a 12-month-old Limousin cross from Donald MacPherson and John Currie. Reserve overall went to the reserve heifer, Pocahontas, a 17-month-old Limousin cross from Dermot and Gareth Small.
The sheep were judged by Castle Douglas butcher Jim Craig. His top choice was the butchers’ pair, two pure Beltex ewe lambs from Jim and Wallace Kennedy. Reserve overall went to the mountain and moorland champions, the Blackface pair from Brian Dickie, Spango.
