ANNUAL SALE OF PEDIGREE RAMS ON BEHALF OF MEMBERS OF THE DSBA. 31 Rams sold overall average £158.35 Judges Andrew Wright & Henry Fawcett saw their judgement backed when their Supreme Champion made top price of 700gns at the Annual Show & Sale of Dalesbred Rams. The Champion and 1st prize shearling ram shown by Godfrey & Alison Haygarth of Tosside is by the £3800 Karen Harrison (Blubberhouses) ram out of a Michael Dawson bred ewe, and was purchased by Richard Brown of Leyburn. Messrs Haygarth & Daughter emerged to the fore again with a shearling ram by the same sire bred from a homebred ewe which joined David Lambert of Leyburn for 500gns. In a strong shearling ram section an unplaced ram shown by Messrs JH&JA Graham & Sons of Lofthouse made 440gns, by a Kevin Wilson ram bred from a Colin Price ewe joined JB&LJ Shirt of Edale. With a reduced entry it was encouraging to see the quality of stock on offer which in turn created interest and custom amongst top breeders.
