Lleyn Sheep Society

Annual Sale at Carlisle Mart – Thursday 25th September 2014

The quality of sheep and the confidence of customers made for a fantastic sale at Carlisle today.  Buyers had come from far and wide but there was a noticeable crowd from Northern Ireland.  Number of sheep remains similar to 2013 but averages across all sections are up on the year noticeable £25 up for both the shearling ewes and ewe lambs.

Shearling ewes set off well from early on in the day.  Lionel Organ, Carmarthenshire topped the section when selling his second prize pen for £450/head to Barry Latimer, Co Tyrone.  Next was JK Goldie, Dumfies who soldthe 3rd prize pen of shearling ewes for £300/head to Ryan Bowie, Crieff.  The Goldies continued to sell well when they sold two pens at £280/head to RG Cunningham, County Down and A Ross, Rosshire.

There was a new class this year for individual shearling ewe suitable for ram and show ring breeding.  JK Goldie sold the third prize for £300 to J Martland, Ormskirk.  L Jenkinson, Kirkby Stephen sold the first prize for £280 to D & J Alexander, Ayrshire.  D & B Henderson, Stonehaven sold out of the ring the second prize from this section at £400 to J Martland

In the ewe lambs Lionel Organ was once again topping the section when he sold the second prize pen for £300/head to A McConville, County Down.  B Walling, Farmstock Genetics, Selkirk were next to top with the first prize pen at £260/head to Clive Long, Co Tyrone.  John Morton, Penrith sold the second prize pen at £240/head also to A McConville.

The commercial females also sold well with very high clearance rates across all the sections.  Commercial shearling ewes could be bought for £140 to £175 depending on skins and size.  Ewe lambs sold the best seen so far this year with buyers able to pick running lambs up for £80 to £98.  Whilst stronger tupping lambs were selling over the £100 mark up to £125.

The excitement continued into the rams.  It was Hamish Goldie, Dumfries who topped at 8000gns when selling to G & A Fort, Keighley.  Lochar Clansman is bred from a Lluest Wen (E & D Jones) sire out of a JK Goldie ewe.  Next to top was P Knowles, Kendal with a Cragg shearling ram.  Bred from a B Walling sire he is out of a homebred ewe.  At 6000gns he joins the flock of H & M Dugdale & Son, Settle.  Hamish Goldie then sold Lochar Captain for 3800gns to R Johnston, Falkirk.  This ram was again bred from another Lluest Wen sire.  Also at 3800gns was a Ballylinney shearling ram from DJ Steen, Lockerbie which sold to HL Nelless, Morpeth.  This ram is bred from a DN Bennett & Son sire, out of a homebred ewe. The Champion Ram from JK Goldie, Lochar Cognac was bred from a G & A Fort ram.  He sold for 2500gns to Laga Farms, Orkney.
