First video sale of Scots Charollais

By FWi staff

A GROUP of Scottish Charollais sheep breeders held their first ever video sale recently at Lanark mart.

Foot-and-mouth restrictions have made it difficult to make any sales of breeding stock this year, but a video sale appears to be the next best option.

The sale “topper” was a ram lamb from Aberdeenshire breeders W&C Ingram of Logie, Pitcaple, Inverurie.

Their Aristocrat-sired lamb made 1500gns to Huntly auctioneer Blair Duffton of Mains of Drumdollo.

Seven ram lambs exchanged hands, levelling at 798.
