Just 16 MV & Pedigree Suffolk females for the annual sale on behalf of the West Country Suffolk Sheep Association but the quality was abundant and trade was strong.

The Champion rosette was awarded to a ewe lamb from Robin and Emma Irwin of Kingsnympton who duly went on to top the sale at 1100gns, the ewe lamb that stood second to her from the same home rose to 700gns and another stable mate made 400gns as Emma’s parents Steve and Marion Elsworthy of Chumleigh sold their ewe lamb well at 500gns. In-lamb shearlings sold to 700gns for Andrew and Wendy Reed of Blackborough as Brandon Roth of Redruth sold the first prize shearling at 600gns as well as older ewes scanned in-lamb at 580, 550 and 500gns. A few others selling around the 400gns mark but all Suffolk females sold averaged a very pleasing £576.
