Entries from Matthew and Janice Simpson's Tardoes flock, Kilmarnock, dominated the inaugural Dutch Spotted sheep sale in Scotland at United Auctions' Stirling Centre, securing both the champion and reserve honours and the lead prices.

The catalogued entry of 25 head, judged by Herbie Kennedy, Wester Parkgate, Dumfries, was topped by the ewe lamb, Tardoes Cassandra, the reserve any other breed champion at Ayr Show, and reserve champion at the National breed show at Myerscough. She made 900gns selling to J Owen, Muirpark, who also bought her ET ewe lamb sister, Tardoes Claire, at 600gns. She was reserve champion at the pre-sale show.

The champion, Tardoes Brie an ET gimmer daughter of Cavan, out of Meike – both original imports from Holland – realised 650gns to H Lawson, East Mains, Carnwath.

Mr Lawson also bought the top priced ewe at 500gns, a French import, from Mrs Brenda Scott, Burnside, Ballindalloch.
