Glenpark Dailie is Supreme Champion at Irish Beltex Sheep Breeders Club Omagh Show and Sale

Kenny and Janice Preston from Omagh retained Supreme Champion status at the Irish Beltex Sheep Breeders Club Show and Sale held at Omagh Auction Mart on Saturday, 21 September with Glenpark Dailie, a shearling ram, doing the honours.

The Prestons’ aged ram, Munreary Bingo, was named Reserve Champion.

Judge Eddie O’Neill from Glenarm described both sheep as “two very strong big rams”.

“The Supreme Champion was a very long well-ended sheep with a good carcase while the Reserve Champion had good length with a great top, and as well as that, he was very good on his feet for an aged ram.”

Glenpark Dailie also took the Male Champion title while Munreary Bingo, was named Reserve Male Champion.

Glenpark Dailie was sired by Mortons Cheeky Boy ET with Callacrag Babe the dam.

Munreary Bingo, bred by PLJ Brolly, was sired by Skiddaw View Trapper and out of Munreary Supreme.

The ram lamb class was won by Bodoney Extra, from Andrew and Jamie McCutcheon’s Bodoney Flock, Trillick.

Sired by Kingledores Wolfman ET this twin lamb was out of Bodoney Choosey ET.

“Overall the sheep in all classes were very good,” added Eddie O’Neill.

Top price on the day was 550gns for Bodoney Embrace ET, a ram lamb belonging to Andrew and Jamie McCutcheon, Bodoney Flock, Trillick. The purchaser was Jonathan McKelvey from Castlederg.

The Supreme Champion remained unsold.
