North West Auctions Kendal Mart held their Second Sale of 1300 Lowland Breeding Sheep on Saturday. A crammed ring of buyers ensured an excellent trade with many vendors reporting an even stronger trade than the super first sale. Messrs Wilson of High House topped the Shearling trade with Mules selling to £165 with his run averaging £146 for his third draw of the season. Breeding ewes sold to a top of £128 for correct Texel x ewes from J & T Hunter, Moser Hill.

The Annual Show of Texel Rams & Ram Lambs attracted a quality entry of 52 with the judging kindly carried out by Mr Alan Clark of Windermere. The Championship was awarded to R & E Ladds, Benson Hall for a tremendous Shearing which later went on to sell for the day’s top price of £700. In the ram lamb class top honours went to A W Crowe, Witherslack for a lamb which later sold for £235. All rams were keenly bid for with all vendors satisfied with prices achieved.
