Their champion was a March-born ewe lamb by Holmebeck Tonto, a third prize winner at this year’s Great Yorkshire Show, and which has has bred ram lambs to 3,000gns. Out of a home-bred Rathbone ewe, the lamb made the top price of 1,300gns to A.J. Wood and Sons, Goosnargh, Preston.

 

The reserve champion was their first prize shearling ewe by Dooley Nissan, which is shared in partnership with Stuart Currie, Rathmell. Out of another home-bred ewe and scanned with twins to Buckles Whizz Kid, it was also bought by Messrs Wood for 800gns.

 

The same vendors took 500gns for their second prize ewe lamb by Eskdale Tangent, which was bought by Richard Sunter, Horton-in-Ribblesdale.

 

Stuart Currie had the second prize shearling ewe, a daughter of Rathbone Leader, and in-lamb to Matts Ambassador, a ram bred in Northern Ireland by Matt Burleigh, Enniskillen, who bought the Currie ewe at 800gns.
