Wedderburn bring home a record breaker!

The inaugural Spotacular Spotties sale will certainly go down in the history books for Wedderburn as we stuck to our guns and dug deep to secure a fantastic Dutch import ewe from Dave Roberts’ Boyo flock for the new breed record and Worcester Livestock Market all breeds centre female record of 20,000gns! 

Candy Floss – 20,00gns

Candy Floss as she is known caught her eye from the second we saw her for her length, scale, breed character and natural fleshing attributes, combined with that added x-factor, we can’t wait to see how she breeds for us. Joining her from the Boyo flock is another aged ewe, Camilla, again an import ewe, who we paid 6500gns for her. 

Camilla – 6500gns

We didn’t just buy on the day, we had some lambs in the sale too and first up for us was our ewe lamb, Wedderburn Elder, a daughter of our successful stock tup Glencoy Chance out of Lochlad Conker, a Hiroshima daughter. This one sold for 1550gns to K Tucker, West Sussex.

Joining her on the journey to Sussex at 1450gns was Wedderburn Echinacea, again by Chance and this time out of an imported ewe.

Trade for tup lambs across the sale was a little sticky, but both of ours got away with Wedderburn Eagle, a son of Chance out of Lochlad Cuckoo, selling for 650gns to B Davies, Haverfordwest and another Chance son, Wedderburn Erasmus, selling for 500gns to previous ewe lamb buyer K Tucker.

We’d like to wish all our buyers the very best with their new purchases and of course a huge thank you to Dave Roberts for providing the opportunity to purchase such fantastic genetics.
