Longwool ram sells for £420 at flock book sale

The second show and sale on behalf of the Devon and Cornwall Longwool flock book association saw another very successful sale, this time at Liskeard market in South Cornwall.

Kivells auctioneer Mark Bromell saw a big crowd of perspective buyers in front of him who in time pushed the best ram up to £420 for the Royal Cornwall Show 2012 champion sold by Messrs J A Darke of Kingsbridge and purchased by Messrs Gregor and Son.

The best of the females came from Messrs W and A Whale of Launceston reaching £189 for two pens of shearling ewes with the reduction sale on behalf of Alison Talling of Looe in South Cornwall receiving a firm trade with the best of her non pedigree 6 tooth ewes to £126.
