Texel hoggs sold to a top price of £98 from Ken Kelsall of Brown.

Strong continental ewes sold £90+ today, topping at £108 twice first for a Suffolk ewe from David Preston of Ellers Farm and then a Charollais ram from Ken Kelsall of Brown Brook. Mule ewes sold into the eighties but buyers very cautious on over fat ewes.
