thought it was soon , bit of a trek for us , always seems a hot trade though , wonder if clarkson will be after some replacements lol
They get some good sheep in there but also not so good ones that have been tarted up. It used to be good when they sold the lot in one day, it was a hell of a sight to see 27k sheep penned up.

Grandad reckoned the Alston Moor sale at Lazonby was phenomenal in the pre F&M days 30-32 000 in one day. Latest he ever bought in there was 1.45am the Thursday morning. Then loaded up and set off the 4 hour ride home! 😣
Then didn't they start again the next day with 10-12000 mule wethers? Might not be right that but seems to ring a bell

I remember the first time I went there with father there was no small lots allowed the lambs ran once around the ring and out, each lot was only sold for 15-20 seconds the sheep were gone and next lot in while last lot were still being sold a bit of an education

Through the Sustainable Farming Incentive, farmers will be paid for environmentally sustainable actions – ones that are simple to do and do not require previous agri-environment scheme experience.

We are piloting the scheme to...
