Last year's sale was a great success, the Champion Ram shown by Mr. L. Richards set the Auction alight.  After a fierce three-way bidding battle the hammer fell to Mr. G. Dart & Son setting a new breed record of 1080.00.  Congratulations to both vendor and purchaser.

Other notable prices:

       840 for G. Dart & Son to R. Kingdon;
       700 for C. Ley to P.Elston;
       600 for C. Ley to Wright & Wright;
       600 for M. Scott to R. & P. Burge;
       560 for R. & P. Burge to G.E. & E.J. Nicholl.

Almost a total clearance of rams left an overall average price in excess of 400.  Well done to everyone!
