Leading the trade at £75,000 was Ian and Patsy Hunter, of the Dalchirla flock, Muthill, with a lamb by a £28,000 Auldhouseburn ram out of a daughter by a home-bred son of a £30,000 Aitkenhead sire. It sold to John Campbell, Glenrath, and Hugh and Alan Blackwood, Muirkirk.

 

Another from the Dalchirla pen made £32,000, selling to the Blackwoods, Troloss Farms, Elvanfoot, and Jimmy and Donald MacGregor, Dyke. By a £24,000 Connachan sire, it is out a daughter of a £24,000 Elmscleugh-bred sire.

 

A bid of £30,000 secured a Dalchirla lamb for Paul Coulson, High Staward, Hexham, for another by the £28,000 Auldhouseburn ram.

 

Dalchirla also topped the shearling trade when Billy McFarlane and sons, Drumgrange, paid £30,000 for a son of a £10,000 Nunnerie ram.

 

Outwith the Dalchirla pen, the trade peaked at £25,000 for a shearling from the Dunlops, of the Elmscleugh flock, Dunbar. By a home-bred £11,000 ram and out of a £90,000 Dalchirla-sired ewe, it went to the Wight family, Crawford.
