Livestock Sales Reports - Lairg

Tuesday 1 October 2019

United Auctions (Tuesday 1 October 2019) sold 6644 North Country Cheviot gimmers and ewes at their annual sale.  A full company of buyers were out in force representing all corners of the UK.  A brisk trade was witnessed with all classes recording an increase in values on the year.  One particular highlight of the sale, albeit a sad one was the dispersal on one of the most noted flocks amongst the breed, Torrish Estate.  Buyers were scrambling over each other to obtain these outstanding genetics, culminating in a new breed record being set for a Ram.

1036 Gimmers (-697) sold to average £111.34 (+£30.22) selling to a top of £190 for a pen of Hill NCC from Badanloch, Sutherland.

5608 Ewes (-527) sold to average £77.53 (+£12.90) selling to a top of £160 for warranted ewes from Badanloch, Sutherland.
