Record entry of over 200 fleeces brings win at Great Yorkshire Show

15
Jul '09
A record entry of 210 fleeces in the Great Yorkshire Show's fleece competition brought victory for Skipton, North Yorkshire sheep farmers S and P Scrivin and Son with a fleece from their flock of Derbyshire Gritstone sheep.

British Wool Marketing Board's Stephen Ballinger judged the competition and described the overall quality of the entries as “exceptionally high”.

“And that's even more significant when shearing has been running late in many areas this summer and the delay has taken it's toll on some fleeces – but certainly not those on show at Harrogate this week,” said Mr Ballinger who is the Wool Board's Regional Manager.

He added the big entry it was a great credit to sheep farmers. “Although world wool prices have affected wool returns of UK sheep producers the entry at the Great Yorkshire Show proved that farmers still take a pride in their fleeces.”

The supreme champion fleece was described as being “absolutely superb” by Mr Ballinger.

“This is a wonderful fleece that's extremely fine-fibred for a hill breed. It's exceptionally clean and will produce a high yield of useable wool with little waste.”

The section for fleeces from North of England Mules – the UK's most popular commercial ewe – was singled out for particular praise from Mr Ballinger but it was a fleece from a Lincoln Longwool presented by C C Mudd, Scarborough that collected the reserve championship ticket.
