Early reports from the Suffolk sale at Shrewsbury are that trade is currently topping at 13,5000gns for a ram lamb (lot 50) from Geoff Biddulph’s Pexhill flock, Cheshire. This twin lamb is by Cairness Achievement who was champion lamb at the national sale in 2009 and sold for 20,000gns. Buyer here was Jimmy Douglas.
The dam is by Stockton Sky’s the Limit who sold at the 2005 Pexhill sale to Cairness for 2000gns and was later re-purchased last year.
The only other news I have is from early on in the ram lamb running when Steve Buckley, Derbyshire, sold a single by Roundacre Raceway out of a Perrinpit High Peak-sired ewe. This one went at 4000gns to Lilburn Estates, Wooler, Northumberland.
Later on in proceedings, a twin lamb from Tom and Charles Harding’s Bentley flock has sold for 5200gns. This one is by Drinkstone Elite Supersire and is out of a dam by Drinkstone Supersire and was knocked down to M Prince, Derbyshire and Messrs Garner and Son, Lincolnshire.
