Top price of 7,000 Guineas for Jim Brown's (Eildon) Shearling Ram at Builth. We believe this is an all time record for a Border Leicester Shearling. This was Jim's final sheep through the ring at his dispersal sale on Monday 21st September. This Shearling was Supreme Champion at the Highland Show this year. He is out of Drennan's 007 Solo and his dam was also the dam of 1,000gns Shearling at Builth in 2012.


As well as this Record Breaking news, overall sale average was £732 (almost 100% up on last year's average of £371) and females met a great trade too with Yearling ewes averaging £457 and ewe lambs £301.
