The Lairg Hill North Country Cheviot show was well attended by competitors and spectators at Lairg Mart on Saturday, with classes for ‘trimmed’ or ‘natural’ entries proving popular once again.
Exhibitors turned out from 9am and it was John Mackay, from Balnakeil, who was responsible for the judging on the day.
After judging had concluded, the overall show champion was confirmed as the 4-crop trimmed ewe from Badanloch, out of a Langdale sire on loan. Her mother was Lairg show champion in 2017, and was sired by North Loch Naver Nomad.
The reserve champion was the trimmed 2 shear, sired by the homebred £16,000 Badanloch Xtra Special.
