Overall In Lamb Sale average £408/hd vs £414.44 previous year. Total of 13 in lamb ewes/gimmers averaged 386 gns (488gns 2015) and 6 ewe hoggs averaged 390 gns (335gns 2015). Topping the sale at 800 gns was Mary Laidlaw's (Drennans) eye catching Lammermuir Ledger sired hogg  (Reserve Champion in the pre sale show) selling to a new breeder, Mr Prince. In lamb gimmers peaked at 700 gns for S & A Watson (Intok) Didcot Drambuie sired gimmer in lamb to Eildon Rob Roy. She was Show Champion and a very smart looking gimmer, selling to Mr Gardiner (Cocklaw). It was fantastic to see so many new faces at the sale and that 11 out of the 19 females went to new breeders. Thank you to all of you for turning out such a fantastic display of sheep for the sale and hope all you new Border Leicester owners are happily admiring your new purchases! Thank you also to Judge Mr John Barrowman for making such a great job of the judging!
