Trade was buoyant for the small consignment of Badger Face Texels on offer at the society’s show and sale of in-lamb females at Carlisle, last week, where prices peaked at 2500gns.

Leading the charge was an imported 2019-born ewe from Stuart Wood, Aberdeen.

Sired by a Dutch-bred ram and out of the Dutch ewe, Jan Postema, this girl sold in lamb to Powerful Tornado. She headed to Kirkby Stephen to join Hannah Pedley’s High Ploughlands flock.

Next best at 2000gns was a Turbo Das gimmer from Jan Rodenburg. A daughter of Turbo Das Notorious B.I.G and out of a Turbo Blue ewe, she sold carrying twins to the flock’s stock ram and home-bred Turbo Das Gunner. She was snapped up by Derbyshire-breeder, Jayden Clamps for use in the Riverside flock.
