There was an excellent turnout for Kintyre Blackface Sheep Breeders’ Association’s stock-judging competition, despite a Burns supper clash.

A successful evening was held at Ballygreggan Farm, Drumlemble, recently, a new venue, courtesy of the Millar family.

The judge for the evening, Mr MacCorkindale, Achnaba, North Connel, was presented with interesting and testing classes to judge, all supplied by the committee.

A raffle raised quite a bit of money, and there was also a collection towards the stricken fishing boat, the Nancy Glen.

The overall winner was Mairi Henderson with a very good score, 17 points ahead of the Young Farmers’ Club winner Kathryn Semple, and 20 ahead of the nearest male competitor.

Mairi was presented with the A Reid Cup and received a quaich to take home.

Results were as follows.

Gents: 1 Douglas Anderson, 2 Andrew Walker, 3 John Ronald. Ladies: Mairi Henderson, 2 Amy McKerral, 3 Josephine Shaw. Juniors: Donnie MacCorkindale, 2 Alison Wylie, 3 Elsie McArthur. YFC: Kathryn Semple, 2 Rhona Earnshaw, 3 Douglas Earnshaw. Team: 1 The McArthur Trio: David McArthur, Elsie McArthur and Andrew Walker; 2 Douglas Anderson, Katrina Anderson and David Anderson; 3 James Peterson, Mairi Henderson and Cara McInnes.
