A shearling ram, Glenview Falcon, from the Glenview Flock of Omagh breeder, Sean Daly, took the Supreme Champion title at the Irish Beltex Sheep Breeders Club Omagh evening show staged at Beattie Livestock Sales, Omagh, on September 24.

The Reserve Champion was a shearling ewe, Derryogue Francisca, from the Derryogue Flock of Kilkeel-based Beltex breeders, Edward and Shirlee Nicholson.

The judge was Brendan McQuaid, Fort View Flock, Banbridge who, commenting on his choice of Supreme Champion, said: “The Champion ram had great shoulders, super muscle and character and is the type of sheep I would like to breed. The Reserve Champion had similar qualities with a good head and muscle and was correct in all aspects.”

Brendan went on to say that it was good to have a good turn-out and that all exhibitors should be proud of their sheep.

Glenview Falcon was sired by Sheephaven Casonova and is out of Glenview Danielle while Derryogue Francisca was sired by Kingledores Emperor with the dam being Derryogue Dixie.

Carried out under the auspices of the Beltex Sheep Society and the Irish Beltex Sheep Breeders Club a total of 69 mv accredited pedigree sheep went under the hammer.

Top price on the night was 1650gns paid by Robert Scott from Newtownstewart for Curley Hill Firenze, a shearling ram, from Graeme Gilmour’s Curley Hill Flock, Dromore, County Tyrone.

The next highest price was 1020gns paid by Mark King from Ballyward for Glenview Freddie, a shearling ram from Sean Daly’s Glenview Flock, Omagh.

Sean Daly’s Supreme Champion, Glenview Falcon, sold to Colin Barnes, Beechtree Flock, Dungannon for 920gns.

Kenny Preston’s class winning ram lamb and Reserve Male Champion, was purchased by Lorna Stubbs, Lisbellaw for 800gns.
