DENBIGH AND FLINT SHOW: Lleyn breed takes the top honour.

GWYNEDD beef and sheep producer Wynne Davies made a clean sweep of the top sheep awards.

History was made at the Denbigh and Flint show as a Lleyn sheep won the supreme sheep sash for the first time - an 18-month home-bred shearling ewe, owned by Wynne Davies, of Bronallt Farm, Morfa Nefyn, Pwllheli. He declared: ``I am very proud for the breed. The organisers here have looked after us well and it's been a good show.''

Mr Davies farms 780 pure-bred breeding ewes - Lleyns, Texels, Charollais and Suffolks.

In the cattle ring, the Denbigh judges agreed with their Anglesey Show counterparts by awarding the main rosettes to the same exhibitors.

In the beef section, top honours were taken by cross-bred heifer Miss Royal, bred by Andrew Powell, of Knighton, Powys, and shown by Derek Winney, of Hereford. Group awards went to the Simmentals and Limousins.
