Perth Progeny Show 2019
The Scottish Progeny Show continued its tour of bonnie Scotland, this time being held at the picturesque showground near the River Tay. It was an early start for some exhibitors, coming all the way from Ayrshire. The day started off dull and misty, but slowly came out as the day progressed.

Jimmy Bell was the crossing judge and he soon ran through his classes, picking his champion from the gimmer section, shown by Alan McIntyre, Glen Farm, who runs just 10 ewes under the CKC Blues banner. This sheep, by an Ian Minto bred tup bought at Stirling, was making her debut in the show ring. She is out of an Alison Bastion sired ewe. The reserve champion was another sheep making its debut, this was a lively ewe lamb from Andrew Jolly, Straloch. This sharp lamb was by a Dreva tup bought out of Carlisle and out of a ewe by a Crow Hall. The Dreva tup was also the cream of the crop in the progeny section, winning both the Bluefaced Leicester section with three gimmer lambs by him and the mule gimmer lambs which took the Mule progeny title were also by a son of the Dreva, which will be forward at Stirling later this backend.

In the traditional end Alan McClymont, Kirkstead was the man everyone was looking to impress. The section was split into accredited and non-accredited sections, which saw Alan clamouring over gates to check out his line ups, which didn't help the speed! There was a strong show of traditional types and the winner was a very impressive gimmer from Matt Drummond. She has a strong pedigree in the show ring with her mother and grand mother all taking big titles over the years. She is by the Cassington G1, a son on of the Craig-yr-Orsedd which has served the flock so well, and out of another show ewe. She has been shown successfully this season and is a very smart, stylish gimmer with a great future. She also took the reserve champion progeny title with another daughter of the G1 and completing a great day for her, took the overall Bluefaced Leicester title when up against the crossing type.

The reserve champion went to the £12,000 Bonvilston Tudor shown by Hazel Brown and Martin Quinn. This monster of a tup, with a cracking mouth, was bought out of Builth last year, with the judge the underbidder. He must have still impressed him as he gave the champion a good run for his money! He is by G2 Cendy and this is his first time out this year after taking 1st prize at the Welsh progeny as a shearling last year. He is producing the goods too, with his tup lambs taking 2nd and 4th in the classes and these two came together with the tup to take the progeny Champion title. These tup lambs will be heading to Carlisle later in the season, and they should certainly be on someone's shopping list, with the power of their sire shining through.
