436 Breeding Sheep comprising 137 Sheep with 259 lambs at foot, 34 Charollais Females and 6 Rams
Today’s sale included a dispersal of Charollais and Mule Sheep on behalf of The Sedgwick Family from Bough Gap, Trawden following the untimely passing of Peter who along with Joan had been longstanding Charollais Sheep breeders and enthusiasts.
The sheep, although coming from a high hill farm on the Yorkshire/Lancashire border, were shown in decent fettle and were good sound sorts. The ring was packed to the rafters with friends and fellow breeders all looking to purchase stock. The Charollais’s all found new homes at what were seen to be reasonable prices, whilst the commercial sheep sold in front of recent trade, which would reflect the genuine nature of these sheep.
