563 Breeding Sheep (comprising 224 Sheep with 327 lambs at foot and 12 Geld Gimmer Hoggs)
A larger show of breeding sheep today for the bank holiday sold to a packed ringside of customers. Good young sheep were a sharp trade being dearer on the week, whilst older sheep maintained recent good prices as grass is more plentiful. The show was well supported and the classes for Singles created some of the top prices on the day.
Jonathan Townley of Clapham had 1st prize Lowland Ewe with Lambs at foot, his correct Texel Ewe with Single Beltex Lamb setting the early pace in the sale selling for £200. Richard Stockdale of Burnsall had the first prize pen of 5 Hoggs with Lambs, selling for £185 the outfit, his run topped at £190 per outfit. Robert Johnson made £175 the outfit on two occasions for Mules with Lambs. The sale toppers however were broken mouth Swale Ewes with Twin Mule lambs from John Bland of Crowden House when selling for £220 the outfit, another ewe with Single lamb selling for £200 the outfit.
