Top price of the day came from David Findlay’s Northern Beltex flock, based at Leyburn, North Yorkshire.  It was the first time back to Carlisle for Mr Findlay since 1999.

The shearling gimmer, Northern Beltex Just a Cracker, shown twice already this year, winning Reserve Champion on both occasions, sold for 2,500 gns to well known Cumbrian butcher, J. Mulholland, Midtown Farm, Great Orton.  This much admired gimmer is in-lamb to Burnside Jethro which Mr Findlay purchased at Carlisle in August for 4,800 gns.

Next up, was another gimmer from the noted Brickrow flock of John Cowan.  Proven genetics of Cookstown Hamish were behind Brickrow Jillian, she being an embryo sister to the ram that John sold at Carlisle in August for 5000gns.  Scanned in-lamb for 3 to Headlind Ee by Gum, she sold to B & F Staveley, Tewitt Hall Farm, Clapham.
