BREEDING SHEEP - TUESDAY 15TH SEPTEMBER

Forward: 2,698 Head comp: 2,643 Ewes & Shearlings & 55 Pedigree Charollais CCM Auctions held their fortnightly sale of Gimmer Shearlings and Breeding Ewes at Skipton Mart on Tuesday. Breeding sheep attracted a good company of buyers and looked dearer than the previous sale. Thomas Binns of Downham presented a wonderful run of Mule Shearlings and 2 shear ewes and these set the tone for the day with the quality sorts receiving a good trade, whilst commercial types were also a better trade than the previous sale.



Next Breeding Ewe & Gimmer Shearling Sale is on Tuesday 29th September and will include the

Annual Special Sale of Halfbred and Horned Ewes broken mouthed, correct below and feeding ewes.

Entries close Monday 21st Sept at 4pm.
