Valais Blacknose lead Carlisle sale at £4,000

Undoubtedly a highlight of the rare, minority and traditional breeds sale of sheep and cattle at Carlisle were the £4,000 and £3,800 bids for Valais Blacknose sheep.

Both lots, the only ones of this breed, were from Alastair Jackson, Annan, Dumfries, who founded his flock with Swiss imports. At £4,000 was a three crop Mule ewe carrying twin Blacknose embryos. The buyer was Peter Simonini, Bampton, Penrith.

 

The £3,800 bid came for an April gimmer lamb which was bought in a three-way split between Nicola Gornall, Clitheroe (half share) with Mark Priestley, Downpatrick, Northern Ireland and Roy Hiddleston, Irongray, Dumfries, both taking a quarter share.

 

Ryelands met a decent trade, peaking at £800 for a ewe lamb from Alison Robinson, Wigton, Cumbria. January-born in her Hawthorns flock, it is by a Lime Kiln sire and was bought by Messrs David and Mitchell, New Cumnock, Ayrshire, who also went to £620 for an Orchard House shearling ewe from S. Parry and S. Whitaker, Kirkbride. Alison Robinson was back in the ring selling two shearlings at £600 apiece to Caitlin Brownrigg, Wigton, and J. Singleton, Preston, respectively.

 

It was two £600 bids which put a ceiling on the Kerry Hill trade. Gwilym Pugh, Four Crosses, Llanymynech, sold a home-bred March 2014-born shearling ram to R. McIntoch, Selkirk, while R.F. and D.J. Price, Churchstoke, Powys, sold a Whitecastles-sired shearling ram from their Pentrenant flock to A.P. Percival, Keighley, West Yorkshire. A shearling ewe from Gwilym Pugh topped the Kerry females at £450.

 

Karen Irving, Gretna, took a £440 call from Chelgrove, Anstruther, Fife, for a Border Leicester shearling ewe to top the small entry of this breed in which she was the only vendor.

 

Wensleydales peaked at £280 when F.H. Fish, Kelso, bought a shearling ram from the only Wensleydale vendors J.N. and S.M. Prescott, Longhorsley, Northumberland. Teeswaters from T. Addison, Barnard Castle, sold to a top of £160 twice for shearling ewes bought by D. Raine, Croglin, Carlisle.

 

Sally Williams, High Peak, Sheffield, sold an Icelandic shearling ram to Ian Wood, Whitby, while a £250 bid topped the Black Welsh Mountains when W.P., L. and W.A.S. Kendall, Drumclog, Strathaven sold a Barons Court Pure Pleasure sired shearling ram to M. and J. Panczak, Anna.

 

Oxford Downs reached £210 for a shearling ram from Andrew Rutherford, Gretna selling to J.B. and L.M. Benson, Penrith while Shetlands peaked at £160 with S.Tyson and R. Simpson, Keswick, selling a shearling ewe to C.L. and A. Mason and Son, Carnforth.

 

David Graveston, Bolton by Bowland, Clitheroe, topped the Hebridean section at £120 when a May-born shearling ewe from his entry of 16 sold to Jonathon James, West Linton, Peebleshire.
