2nd SHOW & SALE OF PEDIGREE SUFFOLK FEMALES
With this Winter Sale of Females now in its second, the current circumstances could have tested its success, but with online bidding made available by the auction company to customers this created a strong virtual company of buyers, and internet bidders were keenly contesting the majority of lots.
The ewes sold well, a range of prices form 300gns upto 900gns, which was paid for lot 4 from Steve Buckley’s Sitlow Flock based at Doveholes. A Salopian He’s the boy daughter out of a Jubilee Legacy Ewe, she sold carrying triplets to the 2,200gns Pyeston Stormzy and the successful bid came from R&E Darlington, Derbyshire.
The top price of the sale was another entry from Sitlow, Lot 13, by Strathbogie Peaky Blinder and again in lamb to Stormzy with twins, she sold for 1300gns to North Yorkshire breeder.
Leading the Ewe lamb prices at 1050gns was Harry Lyons of Congleton, this daughter of the 30,000gns Salopian Scuderia was fancied by many parties, but eventually fell to AIBEA Suffolks of Cheshire. The sale saw a very high clearance rate and solid averages on the year. (Full report to follow)
