1,053 Sheep comp 382 Sheep with 671 lambs at foot.
The largest show of the season so far on Bank Holiday Monday attracted a good ringside of customers, however they were more cautious than of late with grass still in short supply. Anything with strong lambs was best to sell, but more commercial types were cheaper on the week by around £5-£8 per life.
Today we held the Easter Show and judging was undertaken by Mr John Turner of Draughton. His choice as first prize pen of Continental Sheep with lambs were top price of £255 per outfit consigned by Mr Thomas Boothman of Linton. Thomas Boothman had a further 9 pens selling for £200 and £235 per outfit & Johnny Metcalfe selling for £200 per outfit. Full list of results below.
