Trade has slowed a little here in Carlisle for the Beltex shearlings, with the best call in the last few runs being a 3000gns bid for an imported shearling from Gavin Shanks. This one was Bobana V/D Duvels Vleeskupe Terminator, bred in the same flock as Viagrow and Rustler. Two others from Gavin made 1000gns, the first being Inveresk Northern Exposure, an Artnagullion Layabout son with the second Inveresk Notorious, a King Kong son.
Andrew Baillie topped at 1600gns for Callacrag Ned, a Longley Hero son which sold to noted primestock showman Tecwyn Jones.
Then Glen Forsyth sold at 1700gns for Corra Ninian, a Brickrow Lionel son, a King Kong son from the same home, Corra Norman made 1400gns.
