BREEDING SHEEP - MONDAY 25TH MAY 2015

581 Breeding Sheep A busy sale for late in the season saw 229 Hoggs, Shearlings and Ewes with 352 Lambs at Foot presented for sale. The sale ring was packed and older sheep with strong lambs were keenly sought, but trade for Hoggs and Lambs has certainly become quieter in the last few weeks. As ever please advise entries to the mart office by 12noon Friday for inclusion in the online catalogue. Today we held our special late season show and sale of single sheep with lambs at foot. The following awards were given: Lowland sheep: 1st JM Daggett £180; 2nd C Nelson & Son £150; 3rd JW Stockdale & Son £200 Hill Sheep: 1st JH&J Bland £180; 2nd JH&J Bland £170
