North Yorkshire farming family take Sheep Championship Titles
Sheep farmers Martin and Val Brown and their daughter Hannah were celebrating after taking two Championship titles at Countryside Live.
Mr and Mrs Brown’s Beltex X lambs took the Championship rosette for the Best Pair of Butchers Lambs – while daughter Hannah, 22, picked up the Supreme Champion Single Butchers Lamb with a home-bred Beltex X.
Mr and Mrs Brown, who farm at Leyburn, North Yorkshire, were delighted with their success – the pair of lambs had won the Supreme Championship prize at the Great Yorkshire Show in July.
“We always come to a show hoping to have a win, but it gets harder and harder as we have fewer sheep these days. We are just delighted,” said Mr Brown.
Reserve Champion was Robert Garth, of Bentham, Lancashire, and Ian Lancaster with a Beltex X
