Lleyn Sheep Society Annual Sale – Brecon Mart

This year saw a new centre record as the rams topped at 900gns.  The rams were easier sold with many finding homes especially in the easy ballot with commercial buyers using for crossbreeding.  The stronger females sold well with buyers for smaller numbers in attendance.

The shearling ewe section was topped by the first prize pen from HM Wells, Cardigan when they went on to sell for £202/head to Twose Farms, Whitland.  E & L Thomas, St Clears sold pens for £160 and £150/head both bought by C Eynon, Whitland.  The third prize pen from WJ & DJ Williams, Pwllheli sold for £155 also to C Eynon.

The ewe lambs also saw the prize winners top.  The first prize pen from WJ & DJ Williams, Pwllheli sold for £102/head to JPL Owens, Rhayader.  Three pens sold for the £100/head mark.  First AW Davies sold the third prize pen to Messrs Owens.  C Price, Brecon sold a pen of ten to E & L Thomas, St Clears.  DW & CF Morris, St Clears sold the second prize pen to S Lewis, Narbeth.
