ANNUAL SHOW & SALE OF CHEVIOT MULES

Longtown Auction Mart held their annual prize show and sale of 10,628 Cheviot Mules on Tuesday 24th August 2021.
Congratulations must go to all of Longtown Auctions loyal vendors as it was clear to see that a lot of time and effort had been put into the presentation of their sheep. Once again, after a trying spring and a dry summer they still managed to produce the goods as today the quality of sheep on offer was second to none, which in turn was well rewarded with another great sale. Simply outstanding, well done. The Board of Directors, auctioneers and all the staff at Longtown thank all purchasers and vendors alike, who travelled to Longtown from as far afield as Caithness, Aberdeen, Devon, Cornwall, Cheshire, Wales and Northern Ireland and stood all day to purchase the finest Cheviot Mule sheep in the country.
Cheviot Mule gimmer shearlings were first to enter the ring, with an increased entry of 3,374 which was just under double on the year and sold to a brisk trade. Top end shearlings very good to sell whilst the smaller more commercial types proved slightly harder to place, achieving a very satisfactory overall average of £181.34 (-£8.26 on 2020). Topping the sale was a pen of 20 outstanding Cheviot Mule shearlings consigned by regular consigners Messrs R McNee, Over Finlarg, which went on to realise £232, which for the second year running breaks the centre record.
