Lleyn Society seasonal finale at Skipton ends on a high note
The Lleyn Sheep Society’s annual seasonal finale, the registered show and sale at Skipton Auction Mart, finished on an upbeat note, with strong clearance rates seen across all sections. (Thus, Oct 1)
An encouraging shearling ram trade produced bids for most entries, with Wharfedale breeders Mark Shields, of Plum Tree Farm, Timble, Otley, topping the section and the day’s selling prices at 1,000gns with his one and only entry, sired by a Laga ram, out of a home-bred ewe. The buyer was North & East Lleyn Breeders Club secretary Linda Barnard, of Hall Farm, Welham, Malton.
