RHASS Showcase 2021

Date: 14th June - 30th July

Location: Ingliston

The Royal Highland Showcase, a one-day event with only exhibitors allowed on the day, attracted a superb entry of Border Leicesters with 40 top quality stock on show from 9 society members. Judge John Mauchlen, Spotsmains Kelso awarded the championship to Mary Laidlaw’s Drennan’s ewe – a two crop home bred ewe by Kilphin Kipling, used on loan from Tom Tenant and Pete Brown, and bred from a Kinninmonth Kiwi ewe. She narrowly beat former Highland Show Champion and Scottish Farmer Border Leicester of the Decade, a four-crop ewe from John Barrowman’s Knockglass flock. The breeding behind the ewe, dam of the top priced £2700 tup lamb sold at Lanark in 2019 to Tom Nelson, Kilphin flock includes Eildon Epic onto a home bred ewe by Holborn Limited Edition. Male Champion went to Sandy and Alex Watson’s aged tup, Didcot Diamond, with reserve male awarded to the top placed shearling, Intock Island, from Duncan Whyte, Mearns purchased at Lanark in 2020.
