J36 Crooklands Livestock Auction: J36 NWTBC Show and Sale of Pedigree In-Lamb Texel Females and Empty Ewe Hoggs, Saturday 7th January 2023

North West Texel Breeders Club annual show and sale of 112 individual pedigree Texel in lamb females and gimmer hoggs was once again met with a good following at Junction 36 Rural Auction Centre. The pre sale show was kindly sponsored by Agri Lloyd with thanks going to the judge Mr R Watkins of the Cwmcerrig flock. The championship rosette was awarded to M Evans of the Rhaeadar flock, with a much admired gimmer hogg sired by Garngour Envoy II out of the same bred line as Rhaeadar Best of the Best which went on to sell for 4000gns to G Oara. Rounding off a good day for the Rhaeadar flock, they were awarded reserve champion with a gimmer hogg sired by Sportsmans Dare Devil that sold for 1900gns to Thomas Ayrton of the Ayrtons flock. The gimmer shearling class was won by Procters Farm with a Sportsman Double Diamonds daughter, scanned in lamb to Procters Forever which went on to sell for 1800gns to D Morrison. Second prize in the class was consigned by PK&R Woof of the Stainton flock with a Craig Douglas Dancer daughter, which went on to sell for 1600gns.

A new sale record today at 4800gns was achieved by Gordan Gray of the Etterick flock, with a Tima gimmer shearling, sired by Claybury Dunkirk which was scanned with twins to Sadlerhead Frank the Tank and out of one of the best families on the farm. She was met with eager bidding and was purchased by JS Lodge of the Heyworth Lodge flock. Other leading prices saw in lamb gimmer shearlings sell to 1700gns from KA&R Campbell of the Cowell flock, which was sired by Hexel Dgango. All in lamb Texel gimmer shearlings sold to a market average of £814.94 and gimmer hoggs averaging £862.11.

North West Auctions would like to thank North West Texels Breeders Club for their continued support and look forward to seeing you all at the Annual sale of rams and females on Sunday 13th August 2023.
