Good trade suffolk females at Beeston

By Jonathan Long:

A strong trade for Suffolk females was seen at Beeston last Saturday with prices topping at 3600gns for a one-lamb ewe from Ross Lawrence’s Roundacre flock. This one was a Meiklson Impression daughter sold carrying a pair to this year’s Edinburgh champion Cairness Kaos. She sold to John Gould for the Rychmae flock, Buxton.

Next best was a 3100gns bid for a shearling ewe from the Cairness consignment of Jimmy Douglas. This one is by Cairness Just the Best and was carrying twins to 20,000gns sire Cairness Achievement. She was bought by James and Liam Scott, Peterhead.

The next two top calls in the senior ewes were also made for Cairness stock, with 2000gns paid for a three crop ewe by Cairness Save the Day by Bill Troup, Sauchen, for the Whitestone flock. Then making 1500gns was a Cragroe Craftsman daughter which sold to Gary Beacom, Northern Ireland for the Lakeview flock.

Topping the ewe lambs was a 1700gns sale for one from John Sinnett’s Stockton flock. This was a daughter of Morris Les which sold to J L Davies, Aberaeron for the Frongoy flock.

A pair of ewe lambs then traded at 1450gns, the first being a Thurston Calzaghe daughter from David Jones, Ruthin. She sold to Mary Cornish, Buckfastleigh, Devon. Second at this price was another from the Stockton offering by Morris Les. She was taken by Mike Davies and Sons for the Safaddan flock, Brecon.

Averages; 54 ewes £590.92, 44 shearling ewes £514.71, 42 ewe lambs £402.75 (Wright Manley).
