WEEKLY SALE OF EWES & LAMBS (250 Head)
CCM Auctions held their weekly sale of Ewes with Lambs @ Foot, where a smaller entry than anticipated sold to an ever increasing ringside of customers. Top spot today belonged to Richard Simpson of Heathfield, Pateley Bridge whose homebred Mule Shearlings with twins sold at £230 per outfit. Younger sheep were very much in demand and were dearer on the week, although in general the overall quality was better. There were several runs of nice young Texel ewes with smart lambs selling at £120-£138.
