Kelso Ram Sale September 2016
Good news for sheep with full EBV information.
There were some really good results and I would like to congratulate Irene Fowlie with her excellent consignment from the Essie Suffolk flock.
Iren had purchased some semen from our home=bred stock ram Hans Fokker o95 (T79:13:095)
Four of his sons were at Kelso in the Essie pen and averaged £975. Fokker is the highest proven muscle EBV ram in the Suffolk breed. His dam T79:K14 is still in the flock and still looks great.
Fokker produced lots of good females and some are for sale privately this autumn. There is also plenty of semen in stock and he is the Suffolk ram picked by AHDB for their ram compare trial.
2016 on-farm sale – 3.30pm Friday 26th August
Gallows Hill Farm, Cambo, NE61 4LB
Thanks to everyone who came and make it a good auction
Texel shearling rams sold to £1800 and averaged £602 and Suffolk shearling rams sold to £1100 and averaged £502. Crossbred rams sold to £640.
Although not all rams sold on the day we have now sold out of Suffolk shearling rams and only have 3 Texels and a number of crossbred rams still for sale. There are also four good 2shear Suffolk rams available.
As we had a lot of female Suffolks born these last two seasons we are happy to sell some privately and if interested please give me a ring on 01669 620032 or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
