Thainstone Sale 2020

The Mart Staff described it as a ‘very good day’ in the Lleyn section today.  The Lleyn sold through the ring before the main gimmer sale hence there was a crowd of people socially distanced around the ring and making a warm and lively atmosphere.   This resulted in averages being up by as much at £41 on the females and £118 on the rams.

The shearling ewes saw 100% clearance with the top price coming from R & S Turnbull, Inverbervie.  They sold a pen of 15 for £178/head to S Montgomery, Garmond.  Next W & N Lawrence, Auchnagatt sold 3 pens of 20 for £175/head, one pen to JD Mackintos, Dalcross and two pens to S Montgomery.  Other sold at £150 and £160.

The ewe lambs topped at £112/head twice.  Again R & S Turnbull was topping with a pen of 20 to M & S Nesbit, Dess.  CJ & JS Robertson, Stonehaven sold five to JD Mackintos.  In the non-MVA section Messrs Tween & Greenfield, Bucksburn sold running lambs at £92/head.  There was only one pen not sold in the section.

Plenty of demand for rams with 100% clearance.  The top price of 680gns came from the pen of W & N Lawrence, with Ice Breaker (00333/1804882), sired by Borrins Emperor.  He was taken home by Messrs William, Keith.  Laga Farms, Orkney sold two at 620gns.  Both rams (lot 9 & 10) by homebred sires, one was taken home by MT & MAGA Corskellie, Huntly, the other was purchased by PC & PJ Vick, Lumphanan.
