The Annual Show & Sale of Pedigree Beltex Sheep on behalf of the Northern Beltex Club saw an entry, double that of last year, attract customers from throughout the Northern counties and Midlands with new sale records set in all sections.

The judging was conducted by local breeder Mark Jennings, Selside who awarded the Championship rosette to a shearling ram ‘Ivanhoe Watabootie’ from first time vendor JA Bailey, Bedale which later sold for the sale’s top price and new centre record for Beltex of 1300gns to RB Fitton of Bolton. The Reserve rosette was won by first prize Gimmer Shearling ‘Holmebeck Wren’ from P & A Moss, Barnard Castle which went on to sell at 500gns to S Hamilton-Guy, Lanark.

The 1000gn barrier was also achieved by ‘Wilson Wood Warrior’ from I Wilson & C Wood.

A new centre record for females was achieved by the final lot of the sold ‘Holmebeck Winnie’, from P & A Moss, which sold for a final bid of 720gns from AJ Wood, Preston.
