New Lleyn Sheep Sale a Great Success

The new Society sale held in Welshpool on Monday can only be described as very successful. The sale was held alongside a very (very, very!) busy commercial day in Welshpool and this brought extra potential customers to the pens. There were over 8000 prime sheep in the market which meant that there were a lot of sheep farmers about.

The females sold well with DN Bennett & Son, Powys topping the shearling ewe section with £300/head for the champion pen to AG Hughes, Llansantffraid. The same buyer bought their next pen for £265/head. In the ewe lamb section The Jones Family with new shepherdess Megan from Machynlleth topped the section realising £232/head when bought by E Thomas, Carmarthen. The 1st prize lambs from WJ & DJ Williams, Pwllheli were next to top with £170/head to R Hollinshead, Haywood.

In the rams DN Bennett & Son were once again leading with 1000gns for the champion, lot 1654. Bred from a John Morton ram he sold to W Bebb Farms Ltd, Powys. The Bennett Family also sold a ram by a homebred sire for 900gns to AG Hughes, Carmarthan. Christine Lewis, Caersws sold a ram by an E & D Jones sire for 800gns to DG Rees & Meibion, Ceredigion.
