STOCK from Henry Gambles Springwell flock at Bangor claimed the champion and reserve titles at the Northern Ireland Texel Sheep Breeders Clubs latest fixture at Portadown.

And it was the reserve champion ram lamb by Neills Gucci that made the top price of 1400gns selling to H Wilson of Crumlin.

Mr Gambles pen of gimmers was one of the highlights of the sale, with most sired by Friday or his sire Cowal Enterprise.

Top price in the female section was 1200gns paid by Martin Crommie for an exceptional shearling from Louise Reids Castlenavan flock.

The sale produced strong demand in line with that experienced throughout the last four weeks, which has seen over 2000 pedigree Texel sheep change hands at sales in Ulster.
