Clinterty tops Lanark Texels

A disappointing line-up of pedigree Texel gimmers saw averages drop more than £175 per head at the Scottish National show and sale at Lanark, where a top price of just 2800gns was achieved.

The sale, which included the final dispersal of gimmers from the Northhouse flock from Hawick and the reduction sale of females from Morayshire-based Drumpark flock, was however led by one of the best bred females in the catalogue, when the number one female from Brian Buchan and son Brian's Clinterty flock from New Aberdour, Fraserburgh, sold for 2800gns to Southern Ireland breeder, John McGee.

A full sister to the 9000gns ewe lamb sold privately, a 6500gns gimmer sold at Lanark last year and a 5800gns gimmer sold at Carlisle the same year, this Clinterty Par One daughter changed hands carrying a single to the 6000gns Knock Tarquin.
