North West Auction’s Annual Show and Sale of 143 Texel breeding rams and females on behalf of the North West Texel Breeders Club took place on Sunday 14 August 2016. The new sale format was deemed a success by all involved with vendors and purchasers leaving very satisfied and a good day was had by all. With stock judging, hog roast, charity auction and a Ewe Lamb Championship. The charity auction raised £1845 in aid of North West Air Ambulance and we would like to thank all involved for their kind generosity.

The pre-sale show was expertly judged by Mr Stephen Richardson of Stonebridge Texels. A strong line up of sheep was presented in every class with many commenting on the quality forward at the sale. The Championship was awarded to the Gimmer Shearling, Lot 81 sired by Anglezarke Uno from P Woof of the Stainton Flock. The Reserve Championship also being awarded to the Stainton Flock to Lot 39 Stainton Yer Top Man sired by Eden Valley Warrior King.

A buoyant trade was enjoyed throughout the sale with a great atmosphere and a busy ringside of buyers. The day’s trade topped at 1800gns for Lot 88 a Gimmer Shearling from James Robinson of Kaker Mill flock selling a Sportsman Tremendous daughter. This modern stylish shearling had been admired all day and was eagerly bid for, with gimmer shearlings from the same pen selling to 1000gns. The ram trade saw commercial and pedigree buyers looking to purchase; ram lambs selling to a top of 1000gns for Stainton Your Self from Peter Woof. Shearling rams topped at 850gns for the first shearling in the ring from TA & R Laird with Cambwell Weight Lifter.

A highlight of the day was the flock dispersal of the New Valley Texel flock from Jonathan Frankland of Long Bank Farm. His sheep were well presented and were a credit to the hard work and time Jonathan has put into his sheep. His trade topped with a Moor Top 3 shear ewe that had bred very well for the flock at 1300gns. Other noted prices from the flock dispersal were a 2 shear ewe sired by Top Hill Soloman selling to 1200gns and gimmer shearlings topping at 1000gns sired by New Valley Vendetta. Other gimmer shearlings from the flock easily selling in excess of 650gns and a spirited trade throughout the flock dispersal.
