Friday 21st September 2018

United Auctions held their Annual Breeding Sheep Sale at Dalmally Auction Mart.  7747 Sheep of all classes was sold.  Blackface Ewe Lambs lacked condition and size.  All other sections were shown in good bloom and sold at levels satisfactory to consignors.  Despite an excellent ringside of buyers in attendance, prices failed to reach last year’s levels in most sections, this being a reflection on the present shortage of cash throughout the whole farming sector.  The following are the averages obtained on the day.
Blackface Ewe Lambs £45.82 (- £8.95). Cross Bred Ewe Lambs £58.01 (+ £7.96). Blackface Gimmers £83.10 (-£14.20). Cross Bred Gimmers £87.48 (-£9.38). Blackface Ewes £46.31 (-£1.74). Cross Bred Ewes £47.86 (+£2.02).  The stud sheep offered for sale drew interest from all over the country with M/s Jackson, Pole leading the prices with a pen of Blackface Gimmers selling to £1000 per head to Fletcher Farming, Laigh Hatton.
