Organisers of Europe’s biggest ram sale, which movement regulations prevented from taking place on September 24, are planning two smaller events next month.

“We are ready to be quick off the mark as soon as we get the go ahead from Government vets,” says George Hughes, chairman of the NSA sale’s organising committee.

“We will use the permanent buildings at the Royal Welsh showground and give priority to shearlings, as they take up most of the space available. About a week later we will have another sale for ram lambs.”
