Dutch Spotted records were smashed and a new centre all breeds female high of 20,000gns was achieved at the Spotacular sale at Worcester, on Saturday, when an imported ewe from David Roberts' Boyo flock from Kenley, Shrewsbury, was sold.

The aged ewe bred by Joost Louter, met intensive bidding online and in the ring and was eventually knocked down to Jonathan and Janet Corbett buying for their Wedderburn flock from Newent, Glos.

The couple also went to 6500gns for another imported ewe bred by Joost Louter, from the Boyo pen.

Dumfriesshire breeders, A and P Parker, Lockerbie, sold the lead priced gimmer at 4000gns to Trevor Prew, Chipping Norton, Northants.

And, Stirlingshire's Andrew Beattie, bought the top priced ewe lamb at 2500gns from Tom and Louise Nash, Haverfordwest.
