Early Autumn 2015

1st Prize Shearling Gimmer & sale Champion at Skipton Female Sale 10th October 2015.
14DG04338 one of the show team, sired by Langstone K2 out of an H13 granddaughter, sale topper at 1000gns and sold in lamb to Lowerye Neils Favourite.

This was a good sound sale with buyers for all the stock forward at good prices to round off the season.

Our March born lambs usually provide most of the ram lambs to grow on and sell as shearlings.
With the good grass season the lambs had done quite well so after ultra sound scanning at the end of August we opted to take eleven ram lambs to the mobile CT scanner while it was sited with George Fell  at Thorganby near York scanning Meatlincs.

The results were pleasing across the board as we took lambs by five different rams including two by Cwm Dunrig Nelson purchased from Duncan Davies at Builth II 2014 (a really tight skinned ram with Inglis breeding & shape in him)
Out of these we then selected three to run with some ewe lambs in addition to one early born tup. They are as follows:
- 15DG05417  a son of Lowerye Neils Favourite   index 384
- 15DG05654  a son of Foulrice Osprey                index 378
- 15DG05734  a son of Rhaeadr Nock                  index 371
- 15DG05809  a son of Foulrice Overlord              index 431

All good correct tight skinned ram lambs with some shape and style.
So we will look forward with anticipation to a next generation of breeding.
