Scottish National Results 2016

Judge – Jim Finlayson MBE

Dear Members, 
Thank you once again for giving me the opportunity to judge the Leghorn club show at the Scottish National held in my home and bird town of Lanark. 

Once again, there was a good turnout of entries with just a few empty pens.  The quality of the large leghorns was rather moderate with heads letting many of the birds down.  However, the bantams were of an outstanding quality overall - a real honour and credit to all the breeders and exhibitors.   The strongly supported classes of black pullets and white pullets were really “la crθme de la crθme”.   The Champion (black pullet) was a tremendous bird on excellent form looking her best on the day.  The ones placed behind her (2nd – 4th) were also exceptional pullets – just a matter of opinion.  

My only criticism was that some of the leghorns were allocated pens three high due to the shortage of hall space – my steward Mrs Hazel Dickson had to stand on a box handing the birds down to me.

Thank you again for the opportunity to handle and judge such quality birds.  Full results follow.

Jim Finlayson MBE

Scottish National Results 2015

Judge, John Cummings 

It was a great pleasure to be asked to judge the Leghorn club show at the Scottish National.

 On the whole the Leghorns were of good quality and well presented. The large fowl not as strong as the bantams. As usual the white and black bantam females were strong, some good birds not getting carded, Possibly a case for a couple of extra prize cards in the big classes.

Members, it was certainty a great honour to be chosen to judge part of the Leghorn club show at my local town The market firm was my last employer before i retirement.
The quality of the leghorns overall was good and well presented, and in my option the whites both bantam and large were outstanding. Breeders are certainly doing a good job with there breeding program, so I hope they keep going. It was a pleasure working wit Dennis Ash doing the other part of the competition
Yours Fellow member Jim Finleyson M.B.E.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the membership for entrusting their birds to me to judge at Lanark. I hope most of my decisions/remarks are deemed reasonable and i did not upset too many people in the process.
I thought most of the bantams i judged were of a decent standard and on the whole , well presented. The large fowl on the other hand with only a few exceptions where poor , many lacking size , type &with poor head points. I feel that there are many openings for dedicated fanciers to set too and breed& through lengthy stock selection , improve large leghorn quality throughout.
I was especially delighted both for Water worth&Woods partnership and for my selection of the champion, in there lovely black pullet, to be awarded reserve show champion. Finally i would like to take this opportunity to thank Derek Agar for nominating me for the role of vice president of the leghorn club. I will try to justify the members faith in myself and attempt to improve and promote the club whenever possible
Thanks again regards Dennis Ash

D J Watson with his Champion

Judge: Colin McCrone: I must thank the leghorn club for asking me to judge at the Scottish National Show 2011.
I chose the large black leghorn female as my champion bird and reserve champion was a white leghorn bantam cockerel of the club show.
