Stoneleigh Show & Sale Report 2017

Including average sale prices

RJ Thomas & Sons again dominated the ram classes at the 2017 National Show and Sale taking first prizes in the ram lamb and shearling ram classes and repeating last year’s success by winning the champion male, reserve champion male and the group of three ram lambs. Judge D. Bevan then awarded RJ Thomas the overall supreme champion for his ram lamb Cynfarwy Quaerk which ensured he again took home the Phillip Smith points trophy.

 

With twice as many rams on offer this year it was a buyers’ market.  The Supreme Champion took the honours as the top selling ram with a hammer price for 510gns. Other ram lambs sold for 300gns for Cynfarwy Quirk, 305gns for Mrs J Jones’ Braint Cadno and 295gns for HN & GE Morris’ recorded ram lamb Hoggeston Cracker.

 

Reserve champion RJ Thomas’ shearling ram Cynfarwy Pedr sold for 325gns with S Brodie’s third placed Brockhall Nero selling for 300gns.

 

Nesbitt Farms led the senior ram class with their 6 year old entry Froglands Albert which went on to sell for 170gns.  A well deserved ending to their first show season.  Celyn Ted, the 2nd placed ram bred and exhibited by B & H Thomas & Sons, sold for 350gns with Hinchingbrook  Buster, S Brodie’s 3rd placed ram, selling for 310gns.

 

A much reduced female entry saw a clearance of 98% this year.  N & C Williams produced this year’s female champion with their shearling ewe which sold for 155gns.   They also took home the Ling cup for the best group of 3 ewe lambs.  The top selling ewes, achieving 180gns, were two shearling ewes from Mrs J Evans with her third placed shearling ewe selling for 175gns.  W Roberts’ second place shearling ewe made 165gns. Three older ewes sold to 100gns.

 

With all the adult females sold the ewe lambs were in great demand with the reserve champion selling for 178gns, 3 lambs from N & C Williams selling for 152gns and another from Mr & Mrs P Middleton selling for 140gns.  The last female to be sold was from Ms J Grant-Parkes with the hammer falling at 146gns.

 

Our thanks go to the judge, assistant steward Lucy Jeyes, Tom Wrench and his team and everyone who helped on the day with special thanks going to all the vendors who supported our national show and sale by entering their stock.
