We are delighted to be able to welcome our customers on farm again this year for our annual ‘Great from Grass’ breeding sheep sale on Friday 27th August. There’s a great selection of 180 rams and 400 gimmers available.
We will have NZ Suffolks, Texels, Sufftex, Beltex and a larger than usual selection of Aberfield rams as we have decided to sell our entire crop at home this year rather than sending some south to the Stirling sale.
In terms of females we will have 400 Aberfield, Texel and NZ Suffolk cross females available, produced in our commercial flock. These would be a great addition to any breeding flock or ideal as a starter flock.
Last year just wasn’t the same without you all here, we really enjoy the social occasion so bringing that back is key to this year’s sale. The refreshments and food have been ordered and our sponsors are really looking forward to actually speaking to people face to face. (through a mask of course, current Covid-19 regulations will apply)
We won’t however be bringing the sales ring back, last year we found online selling through Yourbid suited us and our buyers better. It was certainly less stress on us and the sheep and also gave those bidding from distance a chance to get involved without spending the day in the car.
It’s testament to our sheep that people have the confidence to buy them without seeing them in the flesh and for those of you that can’t make the viewing day on Friday 20th August or sale day please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
