The annual show and sale of terminal sire Breeding Rams had a smaller entry of just over 100 forward for the sale this year. Thanks go to our pre-sale judges for their time and expertise, Andrew Wilson, David Miller, Bill Livesey and Andrew Fur. The overall Champion was awarded to the Beltex x Shearling Ram from ST Birkett of Carnforth selling for £650 to Bill Livesey. The Reserve Champion was awarded to a Texel Shearling from SG Mellor of Stoke on Trent selling for £450.

A buoyant Suffolk trade was enjoyed with virtually a 100% clearance for Suffolk rams topping at £650 for the first prize shearling from JH Towers and Sons of Tunstall who also sold Suffolk shearlings to £520. The second prize Suffolk shearling sold to £650 from J & F Nutter of Hurst Green, with all Suffolk shearlings selling to a market average of £384. Suffolk ram lambs topped at £450 for the first prize ram lamb from TA Blair of Thornfleet.

There was just a handful of Charollais shearling rams in the market from JA & R Geldard and Sons selling to a top of £420 and £400. A mixed Texel and Beltex trade was had with some rams getting away well and others slightly struggling. Texel rams sold, twice, to £500 from JT & J Kelsall of Cold Cotes with Beltex x rams selling to £500 from the Ayrton Family of Bambers Farm. There was just a small entry of April born Texel ram lambs in selling to £200 from F Carr of Arkholme.
