In-Lamb Female Sale

Lockerbie - Saturday 15th February 2014

The remarkable turnout of buyers down from Caithness to Derbyshire and on down to Wales ensured the Annual Show and Sale of In-lamb North Country Cheviot Females went with a bang at Lockerbie on Saturday with 34 of the 41 sheep forward easily finding new homes.

The four figure barrier was broken on 3 occasions beginning with a ewe hogg from Innes and Gordon Graham, Carruthers, selling at £1000 to Mr James Burton, Ilam Tops, Ashbourne, Derbyshire. She was out of a homebred ewe and by a 3 shear sire, Synton Moderator

Carruthers also took the honours with the Show Champion, a one crop ewe by a Pengroes sire and in lamb to Nuncote Nook Mutton Chops. She sold to the judge Mrs Julie Earle, Llwyncrwn, Penybont, Carmarthen for £800.

Mrs Earle also went home with her Reserve Champion a gimmer, also from the Carruthers flock, by Philiphaugh Cameron, in lamb to a Linburn sire, also bought for £800.

Mr Burton also purchased the other two sheep each making £1000, both from Alan Cowens, Philiphaugh, and both gimmers by Allanshaws Master and in lamb to Philiphaugh Ronaldo.

The Hill Champion, a homebred ewe from Willie Thomson, Hownam Grange, Kelso was sold in lamb to a Haweswater sire for the top price in this section of £280 to Messrs Shorrock, Burnley, Lancashire.
