The sale saw a total of 7,979 (7,810 in 2014) gimmer lambs sold to average of £90.49 per head, compared to £99.88 the previous year.

Skipton branch chairman Neil Heseltine, Malham, said: “I think buyers and sellers came away happy.

“Prices were not down by as much as sellers were anticipating and buyers have been able to acquire lambs at a price which is acceptable to them.”

Championship

In the showring, Ashley and Rachael Caton, Otterburn, secured a championship double with their 10 and 20 pens.

Their champion 10 sold for £200/head, while their pen of 20 sold for top price in the class of £195 each.

Both title-winning pens went to the same buyer, Gareth Daniels, Little Barningham, Norfolk, who was co-judge in the 10s show class.

The Smearsett flock of W.A. and A. Booth, Feizor, took the reserve championship in both the 10s and 20s classes, selling each pen for £165/head and £155/head respectively.
