Lleyn Sheep Society Sale at Aberdeen & Northern Marts 2018

The glorious weather may have kept a few away as many farmers in the area are still combining and cutting 2nd cut silage/haylage. However, the sheep were looking good and should not disappoint their new owners.

The shearling section saw quality sheep sell to a similar trade as last year, the top price was £140/head for the champion pen of 5 ewes from L Cruden, whose 2nd pen of 10 reached £130/head both pens going to Shetland. The 3rd prize pen of 5 shearling ewes were sold reaching £130/head. Laga Farms sold a pen of 5 to £130/head and a pen of 15 to £120/head.  

There were a handful of ewe lambs put forward which were unsold on the day.

In the rams the top price of the day was realised by N Lawrence of Blackpots.  He realised 580gns for a Ram sired by Borrins Emperor sold to Messrs Hay.  Laga Farms sold shearling rams sired by a Jenkins sire for 520gns and 510gns both going to Shetland.
