Stuart had a good entry of sheep in all classes to cast his eye over and eventually awarded the coveted overall champion rosette to the female champion.  The champion was an eye catching homebred aged ewe from Phil May’s Derwenlas Flock 3822/M021 sired by Parton 233/L043 out of homebred ewe Derwenlas J044 going back to Woodcroft 110/H008 on the dam side.  The champion entered the ring as the last consignment to be sold on the day and was eventually knocked down at 1100 guineas.

Reserve Female Champion was awarded to the first prize ewe lamb from D Roberts & Son, Trofarth 4394/P023

Reserve overall champion was awarded to the male champion this was for a powerful shearling ram 2906/N008 from the Bonvilston Flock of Tudor & Janet Harris, and is sired by Myfyrian K008 which was sold at this centre in 2020 for the top price of 2,200 guineas, the gavel went down at 1100 guineas.  The second offering forward from Bonvilston 2906/N019 was another homebred shearling ram sired by homebred ram 2906/K010 and was sold at 1000 guineas.
