FORWARD: 908 Breeding Ewes & 29 Rams.
A late season feel to the sale but still customers supporting good runs of Mule, Lleyn and Texel Shearlings. Hill ewe customers more selective with the highlight a run of sound 4 crop Cheviot ewes. Odd sheep losing a tooth averaging £91 and their 3 crop counter parts in the same conditions averaging £102.
Full clearance of tups today with both Texels and Suffolks selling away to an active crowd. Farmers looking to buy their stock tups as numbers are soon decreasing in the sales. 250-400gns for some nice smart Texel shlg tups and 280-300gns for the Suffolk shlgs.
Next Sale of breeding sheep Tuesday 27th October including all classes of lowland breeding ewes, horned ewes, Hill bred ewes and 2nd Sale of Leicester Rams, Hill Rams and all breeds of lowland rams. Entries to the Mart office please.
