There was a new format this year as CCM Auctions held their Annual Sale of BFL Rams & Females at Skipton Mart which was held on Tuesday evening.

The ram took second prize at the Skipton branch progeny show in August and attracted a successful bid from Robin Booth and went home to join their Smearcett flock. The champion sheep on the night, the 1st prize Ewe Lamb presented by WM Hutchinson & Sons, Kirkby Redgate was by the £18,000 Shafthill K8. This smart lamb sold locally to EW&JR Parkinson at Dunsop Bridge. (Full report to follow)
