Northern Area Stock Show

Date: 8th April 2017

Venue: Yorkshire cavy Club

Judge: Alan Wilson

BIS: Chris Pearson's Adult Red sow ‘Bronte'

 

‘Today's BIS was a stomping adult red sow bred by Chris Pearson. This outstanding pig really performed today showing off her best attributes in markings condition and posture, when on the show bench. The adult red classes were particularly tough but once she had won these pulled away, her destiny was BIS. Despite facing other formidable exhibits she was the outstanding pig. Well Done Chris. I would also like to mention Andrea Gallager's two fine under five month old pigs which were very well balanced and one runner up to the BIS. Well done Andrea, keep at it! 

 

Although a low entry, the quality of stock on display for a Spring show was good and some hard thinking and pernickety observations were needed. Well done all exhibitors.

 

Great show in sunny Keighley, friendly and well organised. Thanks to Mike Bebbington for doing a thorough and legible job on book stewarding and for the cheerful and attentive stewards.'
