Quality Texel Rams in Demand at Kendal

North West Auctions Kendal held its second sale of Breeding ewes and shearlings together with the annual prize show and sale of 140 Texel and other Breed Rams. Texel judging was in the hands of Mr A V Bailey, Howgill who admired a very strong entry. Championship Award went to Messrs R & E Ladds, Benson Hall who sold a tremendous run of quality Texel Rams. The overall champion was a Texel shearling ram which met spirited bidding before the fall of the hammer at £850.   Messrs Ladds sold a run of 8 Texel shearling Rams topping at £1400 and averaging £586. They also sold their mature Texel stock ram “Omar” for £650. This tup sired many of the other shearlings in the run.   Breeding Ewes and shearlings sold very well on the day with Mule Shearlings selling in a similar trade to the first sale. Quality Continentals  sold well also.
