J36 Crooklands Livestock Auction: North West Texel Breeders Club Annual Show & Sale of Texel Rams and Females, Sunday 13th August 2023

North West Auctions were proud to host the Annual Show and Sale of 320 Texel Rams and Females on behalf of the North West Texel Breeders Club. The sale continues to go from strength to strength, gaining a strong reputation amongst all breeders, and attracting purchasers from far and wide. This year’s sale saw one of the best pre-sale shows seen at North West Auctions, with credit going to the vendors for the quality on offer. A special mention goes to our pre-sale judge Pete Longdin, who we thank for his time and expertise.
The championship rosette was awarded to a much admired ram lamb from M Evans of the Rhaeadr Flock. The ram lamb Rhaeadr Gale Break, sired by Streatlam Fire Cracker and dam sired by Sportsmans Dare Devil. Which went on to sell for the sales top price of 2600gns, purchased by Trefor Ryan-Davies of the Bodnant Flock. A strong class of 28 ram lambs saw the second prize lamb awarded the Reserve Championship rosette from Leigh Smith and Joanna Huddart. This ram lamb Majestic Go Getter, sired by Sportsmans Express went on the sell for 1100gns to Ruby, Harry and Lily Geldard of the Whitbarrow flock. The first prize shearling ram was awarded to Stainton Friartuck from PK & R Woof which went on to sell to 1100gns to D Pickford of the Thornsett flock. The shearling ram section sold to a top of 2200gns for Cambwell Floyd consigned by TA & R Laird, with this consigner topping the shearling ram class for the fourth consecutive year.

Ewe lambs peaked at 1100gns from Leigh Smith & Joanne Huddart of the Majestic Flock with this lamb finding a new home with Lewis Walton of the Oaktons flock.
