Update on In Lamb sale averages for Border Leicesters on Mon 15th Jan at H&H Carlisle. 14 in lamb ewes/gimmers averaged £729 and 15 hoggs averaged £448.70

Heading up the sale at 1200gns was the 1st prize winning ewe and Overall Champion consigned by David & Ian Walker from Ayrshire. Sired by Eildon Merrick and out of a daughter of Knockglass Cruiser the successful bidder was F & R Farms Ltd based near Kirkby Stephen. The same purchaser also paid 1100gns for the Reserve Champion, a gimmer from Neil Howie’s Alnwick based flock. Sired by Alticane Dakota and out of a homebred ewe by Eildon The Hirsel. Achieving 1000gns was a ewe from Shona Ker, Annan. This daughter of Ditton Dictator, out of a Hill Justin sired ewe was purchased by D Harrison from Kendal.

Absolutely delighted with the sale and the fact that it has yet again enabled so many new people to make a start into the Border Leicester breed.
