One of the most successful and influential Suffolk sheep flocks
from Aberdeenshire has won the Society’s top flock award
completing a hat-trick of top achievements for 2007.
Robbie Wilson, of Strathisla.
Robbie Wilson, of Strathisla is to be awarded the Suffolk Society’s
Bristol Gold Cup, for the best flock in the UK. He will open his
farm at North Dorlaithers, Turriff, Aberdeenshire, on Thursday,
November 1, when the champion flock can be viewed from 12 noon
with prizes presented at 1.30pm.
Earlier this year Robbie took both the top price and top average
at the Society’s two premier sales: At Edinburgh Strathisla
sold to £48,000 with a recorded lamb and then at the National
Show and Sale he won the championship, which sold for top price
of £10,000. He also took the male and reserve breed champion
at the Royal Highland.
The Strathisla flock first took top honours in the National flock
competition, in 1998, then on his next entry in 2002, and two years
ago in 2005. Visitors to the open day are welcome. “I would
especially welcome those who are not involved with Suffolks,” says
Robbie. Please call Robbie Wilson, 07971 206748 or the Society
office 01684 893366 to assist with catering numbers.
