Lancaster Lads - Thursday 11th August

Posted Friday, 12 August 2016, 2.57pm

Lancaster Lads annual show and sale of Terminal sire breeding rams. A good entry of breeding rams forward once again for this sale saw some strong classes of rams forward in front of the evening’s judges. The reserve champion and Suffolk champion for the fifth year in a row came from SG Mellor of Windicott Farm with a powerful shearling, a great achievement and our congratulations goes to Graham and family. The championship was awarded to ME Wannop and Son of Heaton Hall with a very modern smart Beltex x Texel ram.

A rather selective trade with vendors looking to buy powerful rams and slightly cautious being one of the first sales of the season. Continental and white faced tups certainly the easiest to sell with purchasers looking for plenty of shape and style. A packed ring of people saw the Wannop Family top the trade with the Champion selling to £720 with tups from the same good home selling to £700. Beltex x Charollais rams sold to £700 from JA & R Geldard and Sons of Low Faulshaw. Suffolk tups saw a selective trade with good powerful tups keenly bid for and others difficult to seen as seen with the prime lambs this year. A run of powerful tups from JH Towers & Son of Tunstall Hall topped the Suffolk section selling to £650.
