17 Young Handlers & 18 Pairs forward proving a very successful event.

Mr Haig Murray's comments; “It was encouraging to see so many youngsters today at Dumfries. When I judge a young handlers competition having the best lambs is only part of the package, I always look for genuine interest and pride from the exhibitors, not only in their sheep but themselves. It is without doubt always a very difficult decision but today's winner Sabrina Smith of Barmurrie showed for me an outstanding effort, Well Done!”
