Kelso takes suffolks to 8000 gns
Today’s 175th staging of the Kelso tup sales is currently topping at £8000 for a Suffolk tup from Myfyr Evans’ Rhaeadr flock. Myfyr’s sale leader is a ram lamb by the 90,000gns Ardlea Arbennig out of a dam by Baileys Briagadier II. This one is twin to an 18,000gns lamb from Stirling earlier this year.
Taking a £4800 bid was a Suffolk from Dan Tynan’s Ardlea flock under the stewardship of Pat Greaney. This one is by Ardlea Alonso and out of a Forkins dam by Cairness K9.
Then at £4800 is a Texel from the Clark family’s Garngour flock. This one is by Garngour Rio and out of a dam by Courthill Lewis and sold to Paul Slater, Cheshire.
A pair have sold at £4000, with both of these being Suffolks. The first was another Ardlea Arbennig son from Myfyr Evans. This one is out of a dam by Thurston Calzage.
The other at this money was one from Robbie Wilson’s Strathisla flock. This is a son of 13,000gns sire Forkins Figo out of a 7200gns Lakeview dam. His brother sold at Stirling for 12,000gns.
Selling at £3000 was another Texel from the Clarks’ Garngour flock. This is a Rascarrel Panther son out of a dam by Teiglum Outlaw and sold to R D Rennie, Kelso.
