The champion, a home-bred shearling ram from AD & CH Lambert, of Woodend, Raydale, Askrigg, was exhibited by 21-year-old Robert Lambert, while the show judges were 28-year-old Alison Haygarth, of Settle, responsible for last year’s champion, and 15-year-old Edward Hird, of Yockenthwaite.

The Lambert’s 2006 title winner was awarded the Royston Baxter Perpetual Trophy. The former long-serving foreman at Skipton Auction Mart was unable to be present this year due to illness, but Dalesbred sheep stalwart Joe Stoney, of Pateley Bridge, willingly stepped in to make the presentation.
