Lanark Sale Update

Eildon Dispersal

A quick resume of Lanark sale. 80 Ram lambs averaged £290/hd. 2 Gimmers averaged £270/hd. 6 ewe lambs averaged £422/hd.

Top price for ram lambs £1550 for Jim Brown's Champion (Eildon) and £1500 for Matt Steel's Reserve Champion (Ditton).

Jim Brown's dispersal topped £2,050 twice for his breeding females. This is a new female record price. The previous record was £2,000 set by John Miller Morrison (BL66J) at his dispersal in 1988. 

The Eildon dispersal averaged £838.71/hd for 39 females and £596/hd for ram lambs.  History was made today. Congratulations to all those who now have in their possession an Eildon ewe or two! And thank you Jim for providing such a fantastic show of stock, giving old and new members alike a great addition or start to their flock.
