Welshpool Charollais

Welshpool Charollais

 

By Jeremy Hunt

 

Pedigree Charollais in-lamb females met a solid trade at Buttington Cross, Welshpool achieving 90% clearance and a new Charollais female record price for this venue.  The sale included 95 Charollais females and saw leading flock owner Percy Tait collect the championship and realise the top call of 2000gns for a yearling ewe claimed by J and J Corbett, Highleadon, Gloucestershire. Mr Tait sold also took the reserve championship with a ewe that later sold for 1350gns. Ewe lambs reached 700gns for an entry from Mr and Mrs J Davies, Old Hall Manafon and bought by breed stalwart Lionel Organ for his flock at Llandovery.

 

Averages: 52 yearlings £477; five two-year-olds £325 and 25 ewe lambs £355. (Welshpool Livestock Sales)
