Aged ewes were also well sort after with many local farmers just making up their breeding numbers with odd couple of pens. Broken Mouthed Swales could be purchased around £38-£50 mark for the stronger sorts, tops £50 from R&E Cowperthwaite & Son, Stockdale Farm, and the plainer sorts anything around £25 mark. Broken Mouthed Mules av £48 topping at £58 with a pen from C Nelson. These were a great trade for what was on offer. Mainly plainer sorts on offer which were all getting away to local famers.
