Derbyshire Gritstone Sheepbreeders Society




Outstanding day at Clitheroe on October 14th - an atmosphere like we've not seen for many years!



Female trade was on fire with the Champion Single Female (an ewe lamb from David Eggleton's High Moor flock) making £450. Reserve Single Female (a very strong shearling ewe from WB Watson) raced away making £410! Champion pen of 6 females went to S Field and realised £225 per head!



Champion male was a shearling from Clive Mitchell which realised 3,800gns selling to the judge Stephen Charles. Reserve Champion male also went to Clive Mitchell for a 3-shear tup which went on to make 1,700gns. Champion tup lamb (and twin brother to the champion single female) came from David Eggleton's High Moor flock) making 900gns
