The Roussin section at the annual main NSA ram sale saw a top price of £400 paid for a shearling gimmer from Moffat based Derek Steen. Homebred from Derek’s Ballylinney flock this SJF C452 sired gimmer was brought by D Hobbs from Winbourne, Dorset.
Two lots later the same purchaser also bought another gimmer at £380. This time it was Fiona McIntyre’s TRM F1 sired by LMH D106 who caught the eye.
Ballylinney also topped the ram section when the second lot to enter the ring sold for £320. This shearling was also by the same sire at the top price female, SJF C452 and purchased on the day by RM Jones from Llangynwyd, Bridgend.
Averages: 6 Rams £223.33; 10 Females £198.75
