Royal Highland Show Results 2019

20th June 2019

Judge :-Sam McClymont, Tinnis
THE Ramsay familys reserve female champion from last year went one better to lift the section championship and the supreme overall in a bigger Blackie competition which saw in excess of 100 head forward. Their show stopper from Milnmark, Dalry, Castle Douglas, was the one-crop ewe Cara, a daughter of a £16,000 Dyke that also scooped the breed honours at Stranraer and Dumfries, last year. Her dam  one of 2000 ewes managed by the family  is by a home-bred son of a £26,000 Crossflatt. The family, which was winning a sixth breed championship here, also landed the runner-up female and reserve overall honours with a home-bred gimmer. She boasts some first class genetics being sired by the £55,000 East Happrew Sir John, and out of a ewe by a home-bred son of a £7500 Clanary. While it was a good day for the Ramsays, it was an even better show for 16-yearold Finlay Robertson and his father John, who brought out the male champion, a previously unshown home-bred shearling ram from Hugh Hamilton, Crosswoodhill, who was exhibiting here for the first time. He is by a £1900 Williamhope and out of a ewe by a £3600 Crosswoodburn which together with the overall champion, provided the reserve overall in the inter-breed pairs competition on the Sunday. Second best male was a two-shear ram from John Marshalls Gosland flock from Broughton, Biggar, brought out by shepherd, Willie Craig. Their big tup, a son of a £14,000 Dalchirla, was bought at Stirling last year from breeder, Stuart MacDougall, Millhouse. The dam is by a £4600 Auldhouseburn.
