7,000gns top at Aberkinsey Charollais dispersal

The dispersal sale of the Aberkinsey flock of Charollais sheep saw Ruthin Auction Mart packed out on Sunday (October 25), where trade topped at 7,000gns.

Owner Meilir Jones, Trelanwyd, Flintshire, was selling to focus on his beef finishing enterprise.

 

The first stock ram into the ring, Glyn Coch Mr T, which had been a major influence on the quality of sheep on offer, attracted ringside and telephone bidding, before making the day’s top price.

A consortium of four Welsh flock owners – Adrian Davies, David Curran, Arwel Owen, Huw Roberts – plus Jeremy Price, Herefordshire, were the buyers.

 

Under-bidder David Mawhinney, Northern Ireland, later bought 40 doses of Mr T semen at £40/dose. Mr T was sired by Oakchurch Lukasz, out of a Glyn Coch Habana ewe, and had been bought at the 2012 Worcester premier sale for 4,400gns.

 

An outstanding four-year-old ewe with a number of high quality daughters and grand-daughters in the sale, made 3,700gns. Bruce Irvine (Sauchentree flock), Aberdeenshire, in conjunction with Lewis Anderson, Banchory, were the successful bidders. The Bachymbyd Jack Daniels-sired ewe is out of a ewe tracing back to Southam Easy Rider.

 

The next highest priced ewe at 2,700gns went to the North of Scotland, with Ian Spence and Sue Pye, for their Tullynessle flock, Aberdeenshire. The two-shear ewe was a daughter of the top priced female and by Glyn Coch Mr T.

The same buyers went to 1,550gns for a 2011-born ewe, from which the progeny in one year alone grossed £11,500. Sired by Bachymbyd Jack Daniels, it was carrying twins to Mr T.

Two further ET full sisters made four figure sums. The first at 1,400gns sold to Emyr Hughes, Pembrokeshire (Bronwydd flock) and the second, at 1,350gns, sold to two flocks – Adrian Davies, Glyn Coch, and David Curran, Wernfawr, from Carmarthenshire and Brecon, respectively.

 

These ewes were all in-lamb to last year’s Royal Welsh Show male champion, Wernvale Master. A daughter of a 1,550gns ewe sold for 1,350gns to G. and E. Price, Llanilar, Aberystwyth.

Leading the shearling ewes was one at 1,100gns by Mr T, out of a Foulrice Eurostar ewe, carrying twins to Wernvale Master. Its buyer was Elaine Parry Jones, Penegoes, Machynlleth.

 

Ewe lambs topped at 1,200gns from Robert Whittaker, Jedburgh, Scottish Borders. A triplet by Aberkinsey Officer, its dam went back to a ewe sold at the Penhros dispersal sale for 4,000gns.
