2,091 Breeding Sheep Comp 928 Shearlings & Correct Ewes and Annual sale of 1,163 Broken Mouth Ewes
CCM Auctions held their Fortnightly Sale of Breeding Ewes together with The Annual Sale of Broken Mouth Ewes. Trade for young sheep was equal to that seen at the previous sale with shearlings of all breeds good to sell. The second part of todays’ sale comprised of the broken mouth correct below ewes, the sheep in this section were shown in far better bloom than last year, and this definitely had a positive effect on trade with prices much stronger on the year.
