Congratulations to Messrs M J R & J A Pinny on winning the East of England Smithfield Festival.  Mr S Powdrill (EBLEX) who judged the event awarded the Carcase Champion to a  home bred Suffolk cross lamb.   The lamb was sired by Strathisla Johnnie and out of a Suffolk X Texel ewe lamb.  It was born in mid May and weighed 43kg liveweight killing out at 22kg deadweight and grading E2.  The lamb was sold for a top price of £600 to Robert Knight on behalf of Seven Wells Butchers. 

John Hall judged the live animals and once again Suffolks were to the fore.  Malcolm Stewart was awarded Reserve Championship in the Native Breeds Section with a Pair of Lambs from his Sandyknowe flock.
