Jacob sheep have certainly had a good week as last week’s sale at Worcester saw a top price of 500gns and St Boswell went one better topping at 550gns.
The St Boswells leader was a ram lamb from Hope Farm, while the reserve champion, a two-crop ewe from A Reilly, sold to G Haworth, Skipton for 520gns.
Topping Worcester at 500gns was the champion, a shearling ram Webbery Lancelot from Mrs B M Wilson, Barnstaple, Devon. Buyer was R Chapman, Derbyshire.
A shearling ram from D J and M M Biggs’ Dalewode flock sold at 440gns to B Parker, Staffs.
Females topped at 390gns for the female and overall reserve champion, a shearling ewe from Mrs H Baillie’s Hyndshaw flock, Lanark selling to Ben Stanley, Leicester.
