Celebrating 50 Years of the Lleyn Sheep Society in 2020

SKIPTON SALE 2020

The final Society sale of 2020 and it did not disappoint with females once again in demand.  There was a warm and busy atmosphere helped by the mart running a multi breed ram sale alongside. 

The shearling ewes saw plenty of interest with the best sheep easily finding new homes at £190-200.  There were buyers taking sheep home at £170-180 with some smaller sheep sold for £145-£155.  There were two pens realised £205/head.  First regular and local consigner, H & M Dugdale, Settle sold a pen of 10 to S Lord, Oldham.  Next E & D Jones, Machynlleth sold a pen of 9 to A Hartley, Blackshaw Head.  Messrs Dugdale sold a pen at £200/head to SP & VM Morris, Preston and a pen at £195/head to JA Wood & Sons, Shrewsbury.  Another local consigner SJ Kavanagh, Draughton sold his top pen at £200/head to WH Greensit, Bedale.  Mr Kavanagh sold further pens at £195.  There was 100% clearance in this section.

 The on-going confidence in the sheep industry and prime lamb market is still helping the ewe lamb trade with the section topping at £150/head from AW Davies, Pwllheli when selling to AJ Mackintosh, Ravenglass.  Farmstock Genetics had a large run selling their top pen of 20 for £125/head to S Wisher, Driffield.  JA & R Geldard & Sons, Kendal sold two pens of 10 for £125 & £120/head both to CW Marwood, York.  C Nicholson, Beverley sold 10 for £121/head to B Wharton, Malton. 

Rams were topped by E & D Jones, Machymlleth with a Lluest Ram (00599/1910919) sired by Brightonhouse Gold Card.  He sold for 750gns to M Dugdale, Tosside.  H & M Dugdale, Settle sold Borrins Intercom (01228/1913872) sired by a P Knowles ram for 600gns to GJ Goff, Norfolk.  At 550gns was another Lluest Ram (00599/1910816) sired by Wraycastle Emmanuel from E & D Jones.  He sold for 550gns to DJ & C Thompson, Helmsley.
