Machars Young Farmers held their Annual Sheep Stockjudging event last weekend with over 100 people taking part.

A huge thank you to the hosts the Campbell and Archibald families and their staff and judge for the night Mr Robert McTurk and event sponsors Shearwell Data Ltd, Craig Wilson Ltd and Tarff Valley. First Overall and 1st Junior was Fraser McTaggart, equal runners-up were Ruari McTaggart and Danny Kennedy. First lady was Rowan Hurst and Claire Cannon was first young farmer. The club also held a charity coffee afternoon during the Wigtown Riding of the Marches, raising £465 for Wigtown Community Festival, Wigtown Food Festival and club funds. Thanks to the talented bakers (and their mums!) who supplied lots of wonderful baked goodies and prizes.
