Strathisla Suffolk Sheep Flock Open Day

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 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.
