: Lancaster Gimmer Lambs - Wednesday 19th September

Lancaster Auction Marts annual show and sale Mule and Continental Gimmer Lambs had a catalogued of 1500 lambs. The sale, once again, attracted a busy ringside of buyers from Northern Counties and Southern buyers present as well.

The pre-sale judging was in the capable hands of Mr Ian Lancaster of Clitheroe, who had a strong entry of a dozen pens of ten forward to cast his eye over. Congratulations go to RH & C Ayrton, Abbeystead who were awarded the first prize rosette in the pen of tens which later sold to £120. This was closely followed by the second prize pen from AC & K Pye, Abbeystead, selling to £115. The first prize pen of twenty was awarded to W & A Cornall, Barnacre, which sold for £100 with the second prize pen of twenty going to AC & K Pye, selling to £106.

The prize for the highest average of 50 lambs, not including prize winning lambs, was awarded to B & SE Carter, Ellel.
