Congratulations to Emyr Hughes from Pembrokeshire who had a sale to remember taking the show champion and the top price with two different ram lambs. Top price was 2,350 gns for a February born lamb sired by Gwyndy Llewellyn son out of a Parkgate ewe by Foulrice Knockout. After spirited bidding the lamb was knocked down to Robert Gregory for his Edstaston Flock in Shropshire. (pictured below)
The pre-sale classes were judged by David Roberts from Shropshire who selected the winner of the early December class as his champion. This was a Bronwydd ram lamb by Parkgate Hurricane out of a Logie Durno JR ewe. He backed his judgment by purchasing the tup for 1,600 gns. (pictured below)
Myfyr Evans had two top-priced lambs in his pen. Leading the way at 2,000 gns was a son of Wernfawr Neo out of a Parkgate Hurricane ewe. Buyer for this one was John and Carol Maxwell from Fordham in Cambridgeshire. (pictured below)
Jonathan and Janet Corbett took another Rhaeadr ram lamb at 1,600 gns; this was also sired by Wernfawr Neo and this time out of a Ballyhibben Klass Act ewe. The top price shearling ram came out of the Bachymbyd pen of Huw Roberts from Ruthin in North Wales. Purchaser for this Mortimer Mark II son out of a Crogham Hannibal II daughter was Mrs J Norton from Ludlow in Shropshire. His price was 1,350 gns. The reserve show champion was a shearling ram from the Mortimer Flock of Geoff Probert and sold for 800 gns to Messrs EI & DP Jones from Lampeter. This one was sired by a Bachymbyd sire out of a Logie Durno I’m Yer Man ewe
