Better than anticipated Beeston Suffolk sale

Although prices were unsurprisingly back on the year, at the annual sale of Suffolk females at Beeston Castle, they were generally better than vendors had anticipated.

The top price of 1,750gns in this Farmers Guardian-sponsored sale, came for the champion, a home-bred two-crop ewe by Cairness Classic Fyvie from Jimmy Douglas’s flock at Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire. It sold carrying Rhaeadr Best of the Best-sired twins to the vendor’s shepherd David Moir.

 

In reserve place and making second top price of 1,200gns was a ewe lamb by Rhaeadr Rastafari, out of a Muiresk Kings Champion ewe from Stephen Bolland, Bolton Abbey, Skipton. It was bought by Mark Priestley, Downpatrick, Co Down. Another from Mr Bolland’s pen of lambs, also by Rastafari, sold for 850gns to D.G. Davies, Coed Talon, Mold.

 

Selling for 1,000gns was a five-crop ewe bred by John Gibb but consigned by Jimmy Douglas. This daughter of Deveronside Speedway scanned carrying twins to the £3,000 Kelso purchase, Conchar Crusader and went to M. Waycott, Devon.

 

Selling at 800gns was the second prize ewe from Messrs Sinnett. By Conchar PR, it sold carrying a single to Frongoy Welsh Champion, to Laura-Jane Berry, Bacup.
