A triple win of interbreeds at Royal Cornwall Show

This year’s south west regional feature show took to the rings of The Royal Cornwall Show with Robert Gregory of the Edstaston flock taking care of judging proceedings. 

Following a super strong show of aged ewes, Robert found his female and overall breed champion in the form of an aged ewe from Tom Nancekivell’s Heatham flock. This one is by Bronwydd Undeniable and out of a homebred ewe by Robleston Styler.  She has been shown successfully prior to Cornwall Show winning the interbreed at Okehampton in 2021. 

She also went one better to catch the eye of interbreed judge John Campbell of Thrunton to take the interbreed crown. 

Clinching the reserve breed section was a shearling ram from Michael and Melanie Alford’s Foxhill flock, Logie Durno All Star, who was purchased privately last summer as a ram lamb and is by Foxhill Va Va Voom out of a Loanhead Talisman daughter. This one has already stood breed champion at Devon County Show earlier this summer.

Both All Star and Tom’s breed champion teamed up to clinch the reserve interbreed pairs title, again under John Campbell. 

Also flying the flag in the interbreed ring was the first placed ram lamb from Ben, Amelia and young Finley Watts’ Willow flock. Willow Bruce is by Oakchurch Apache and out of a homebred ewe by Artnagullion Ubolt.
