LLEYN REPORT - THURSDAY 30TH SEPTEMBER 2021

The Lleyn Sheep Society held their Annual Sale at Skipton on Thursday. The sale saw a good enquiry for ewe lambs and the middle runs of yearlings, however trade wasnt as good as last year for the better end. Ram had a decent enquiry for the good end of breeders sheep, but unlike the females, the more commercial end of rams were a slow trade. Messrs H&M Dugdale of Stackhouse, and Messrs G&A Fort of Steeton shared the spoils in the yearling prices when making £200 per head, whilst Messrs Fort topped the ewe lambs at £135. Messrs Dugdale peaked the ram section at 900gns.
