BREEDING SHEEP - TUESDAY 27TH OCTOBER 2015

BREEDING SHEEP - TUESDAY 27TH OCTOBER 2015

A healthy trade for breeding sheep on the last Tuesday Ewe sale of the season with a handy trade for all types, especially older sheep with buyers looking for suitable late additions to their flocks. Young sheep were also a reasonable trade with S Hodgson of Glossop making £108 of a pen of Texel X shearlings and SMR Foster, Arncliffe making £100 with some Mule shearlings. Old sheep were at such a trade that both parties would be happy with ‘one more time round’ sheep at between £40 and £65 and topping in the late £70’s for all types.
