Young Sheep Handlers battle it out for Pole Position

Two young sheep handlers who each won their age group categories at Countryside Live went head to head for the Championship title – with a nine-year-old schoolboy from Derbyshire coming out as overall winner.

Harvey Heath, 9, of Ashbourne, Derbyshire, pipped Jack Whiteford, 7, of Brampton, Carlisle, at the post by being crowned overall Champion Young Handler on the final day of Countryside Live. He had earlier won the Young Handlers (aged 9 to 14 years) with his Beltex X Texel lamb.

The schoolboy, who has his own flock of 50 pedigree Blue Texels and Pedigree Beltex, has been showing sheep for the past three years. His parents are cattle farmers  but bought Harvey sheep as they were ‘easier to manage’.

“Harvey was a little nervous before he went into this class as it’s the first time he has been in the older age category – but we’re delighted with his win,” said his mother, Nicola.

Jack Whiteford, of Brampton, Carlisle, was crowned best Young Handler (aged 8 and under) having beaten off tough competition from a field including his twin sisters Abbie, and Jessica, aged 5, with his black Texel lamb.
