Hexham – 23 September

23rd September 2020


A substitute entry from Martin Snaith, Chesterhope Ryehill Farm, Northumberland, topped a small entry of Beltex rams at Hexham and Northern Marts on Wednesday, 23 September, when Burgh Hill Edgar sold for 900gns.

Sired by Ryden Brandon and out of the Mortons Spaceman daughter, Burgh Hill Wanda, Edgar sold to AR Towers, Felton, Northumberland.

The same buyer paid 750gns for the next lot, Burgh Hill Ernie, another by the Brandon sire and this time out of Artnagullion Savy, this time by Clary Platform.

Making the same money was another substitute by Ryden Brandon, Burgh Hill Edwin. Bred from the Bessy Bell Wallace-sired Burgh Hill Caitlyn, Edwin sold to S Urwin, Metfen, Newcastle upon Tyne.

Average: Five shearling rams, £615 (4 x £467 in 2019).
