AN Omagh sheep breeder was among the winners at the Irish Beltex Club’s National Show, held during his hometown show at the weekend.
Gary Scott, of Bessie Bell Flock, won numerous first and second prizes in various categories at Omagh Show on Saturday.
Overall, there was a good showing of sheep in the various classes, which included ‘Pairs’ and ‘Group of Three’.
While there were a number of showers throughout the day it didn’t dampen the spirits of those taking part in what is a much anticipated show in the Irish Club calendar.
Judge Michael Owens, who together with his wife, Heulwen and sons, Christopher and Andrew, run the Glantre Flock in Wales said he was very impressed with the overall quality of the entries in all classes.
“Showing was to a very high standard and that made my job even more challenging in all classes,” said Michael. “However, both the Supreme Champion and the Reserve Champion were worthy of their titles.
Michael said he and his wife, Heulwen, thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience at Omagh Show and finished by saying he would like to thank everyone for their hospitality and the warm welcome that they had received.
“We will most definitely be back,” he concluded.
