Winter Fair 28/29th November 2011
On a dry but breezy November day, nine pairs of Llanwenog lambs lined up in front the the Judge, Mr Matthew Brown (of Dunbia), at this year’s event. Needless to say, the crowd was up considerably from last year, with a record-breaking attendance on the Monday . The temperature was in double figures again this year – but +12 as opposed to last year’s minus 18! Spectators lined the ring expectantly as Mr Brown went through the judging methodically and thoroughly.
This year, the honours went to Mr John Green of the Blaenplwyf flock, with Mr & Mrs Arfon Williams taking second place (having won last year’s class). Mr Green also took third position, with Steffan Davies (Bryndolau flock) in fourth and Huw & Lynwen Jenkins in 5th. The remaining rosette for 6th place again went to Mr John Green.
It was nice to see such quality stock being exhibited at this year’s event; this can do nothing except expand the breed’s reputation further within the farming fraternity.
Thank you to all members who made the effort to attend and represent the breed.
