In its first year back at the Barvas and Brue community centre show ground, the Westside agricultural show was once more a well-attended event today (Friday July 27th)
The show was opened by Agnes Rennie of Urras Oighreachd Gabhsainn, who hailed the effort of volunteers who had again come together to make the successful show happen.
The show consisted of several competition categories, a trade stall tent, children’s activities and the centre piece of the show, livestock judging.
The cattle categories were judged by Ruairidh Macdougal. The Supreme champion was a calf owned by show organiser Corags and reserve champion was Steven Stewart’s Aberdeen Angus.
Ally Williamson won the supreme champion with a blackface tup lamb with the reserve awarded to Dina Murray. Sheep judge Thomas Moorhead said, “There has been a very good standard overall it’s great to see so many good sheep at a small local show like this.”
The side stall tent saw businesses and charities alike from across the island flock to Barvas. With free samples, plenty for sale and numerous competitions the tent was full of activity through out the day.
