Today’s Texel sale at Lanark has got off to a flying start with Martin and Cyril Millar’s pre-sale show champion Millar’s Outstanding commanding a bid of 29,000gns. This February-born lamb is by Mellor Vale Masterpiece, the sire of the 12,000gns lamb at Dungannon last week and out of a homebred ewe by Corrie Lancelot. He stood first in the ram lamb class at Balmoral Show.
The Millar’s also made another five figure sale from the pen of ram lambs, with Millar’s Outsmart, a full brother to the 29,000gns lamb, selling just three lots later for 22,000gns.
And just five lots later Alistair Gault also enjoyed a cracking start to his trade, with Forkins One and Only selling for 24,000gns. This one is by Telgum Magnum and out of a Castlecairn Kennedy sired dam.
