Frome – 25 September

25th October 2020


Entries from Louise Elworthy’s Fingle flock from Crockernwell, Exeter, led the sale of Beltex males and females at Frome Livestock Auctioneers’ Frome centre on Friday, 25 September, when a ram lamb and shearling ewe both sold for 480gns apiece.

The small entry first hit that price for Fingle Fletcher, a January-born ram lamb by Finniness Comic and out of the Swelle Angus daughter, Fingle Dolly Mixtures. He sold to the team at Highway Huntaways, Cucklington.

Matching that was the shearling ewe, Fingle Eugenie, which this time sold to Stuart Clatworthy for his Huntspill flock near East Huntspill. Sired by the imported ram called The Bare Boy, Eugenie is out of Fingle Amellia, a Kingledores Tempest daughter.

Shearling rams peaked at 420gns for Margaret Heard and John Garland’s Maundown Ean from their flock at Wiveliscombe, Taunton. Selling to WA Waterman, Bockhampton, Ean’s sire is Glantre Arnold while his dam is Maundown Amy, herself by Teign Valley Tornado.

Averages: One shearling ram, £441 (5 x £300 in 2019); two ram lambs, £452 (3 x £308); one aged ewe, £289; four shearling ewes, £441 (2 x 420); one ewe lamb, £210.
