As well as selling Spotties at the Worcester sale, we were excited to bring home a pair of ET-bred lambs by Glencoy Chance out of an imported ewe from Sara Gibbons’ Whatmore flock. We purchased these on a recipient ewe for 3400gns. We can’t wait to see how these grow on in the flock.
Having supported the inaugural pedigree female sale at Worcester Market this month, we were delighted with trade for our Dutch Spotted sheep.
Topping our offering was a Zwartble recipient ewe with embryo lambs at foot by Glencoy Chance out of the 2000gns Tip Top Candy, herself a full sister to Tip Top Calvin Klein. This outfit sold for 2800gns to T Mogg, Redditch.
We then sold a brace of Texel cross Beltex females with Grade 4 ewe lambs at foot by Calvin Klein again for 600gns and a third one for 680gns.
We’d like to wish all buyers the very best with the sheep and congratulations to McCartneys for putting on the sale. We look forward to building on this in the future for the breed.
The first of our homebred ram lambs sold at Welshpool this month with good results. Both tup lambs are by Lochlad Bespoke, himself a former reserve male champion at the National Show and Great Yorkshire in 2019. Bespoke’s sire, Hiroshima, was male champion at the 2017 Great Yorkshire Show. The lambs are out of an imported ewe we purchased at Worcester for 2850gns. Selling for 1500gns was Wedderburn Dancer, while Wedderburn Diamond, sold for 1000gns. We’d like to wish the buyers the very best with their purchases.
Joining the flock this month are two ewe lambs in the form of Mount Pleasant Dido and Mount Pleasant Dreamy. Both ewe lambs are by Mount Pleasant Cracker and are out of imported ewes. These striking girls will no doubt be a great addition to the flock.
