Troutbeck Ram Sale 131021
On Wednesday Penrith & District Farmers’ Mart LLP held their annual “Troutbeck” sale of Swaledale, Bluefaced Leicester, Cheviot, Suffolk & Continental Rams.
There was plenty of demand late in the season for all classes of breeding rams, with quality and strength proving to be very easy to sell and more of that stamp could easily have been sold.
The sale topped at £750 for a strong, clean, Swaledale Shearling from Mr H Harrison, Brookfield, Shap selling to Mr D W Cannon, Low Abbey.
The North County Cheviot section topped at £600 from Messrs TW Bell & Son, Hill Top for a superb lengthy sheep, with a great neck and head selling to Messrs AD & T Harrison, Brotherilkeld.
Mr KO Stones, Nuncote Nook Farm, brought his annual consignment for Penrith, topping at £500 for a superb, strong, Texel Shearling selling to Mr A Turnbull.
In the lamb section demand was very strong, with great supporters of our tup sales Messrs Hewson, Burgh Head topping at £450 for a powerful, stylish, Suffolk selling to Messrs Robley, with this home selling numerous other Texel and Suffolk lambs to over £400 per head.
The sale next year will be combined with our second sale of Mule Gimmer Lambs and all other classes of breeding sheep on Tuesday 18th October 2022.
