Northern Area Stock Show - Cumbria CC
BIS: Andrea Gallagher's Red adult
Judge: Graham Godfrey
'A really good entry today at one of my favourite venues set in the lovely Lake District. Really good quality pigs on display and a pleasure to judge them all. Leading the way was Andrea Gallagher's lovely Red sow just heading Alan Wilson's beautifully balanced Cream. Hopefully we will be invited back for another stock show and I thoroughly recommend this lovely venue, especially if it can be combined with a few days break to enjoy the lovely scenery. Many thanks to Sam and the team for a really lovely day.
