Carlisle today - about 700 shearling rams averaged £1500, with a top price of 30,000 gns.
I can't remember being at a sale with as much buzz and enthusiasm.
And the same will happen next year after about a third of the purchases have died.
I bought one from a lass up your way a couple of years ago and he is still going strong, very good tup. So bite the bullet yesterday and bought from her again, paid a little more than I would of liked but if they last it will be worth it.The man from here has a heap down in fact a good consignment from up this corner, the issue with some Beltex is that the are pushed
Youl have to make sure you dont pay to much for them then if theyre just one year models, price lambs are 4 or 500 apiece probably justifiable, plenty for one year.Last year l bought 4 at lanark and there all died, lmbs are wee but sell well for me as stores but now l just except they will all die before the spring.
You'd be better off selling them (what's left of them) after they've finished tupping. Save the dead stock collection fee.Last year l bought 4 at lanark and there all died, lmbs are wee but sell well for me as stores but now l just except they will all die before the spring.
