Entries from Colin Root’s Freckleton flock and Louise Elworthy’s Fingle flock headed up the Beltex entry at the NSA sale at Kivells’ Exeter centre on Wednesday, 18 August, with one from each topping the sale at 650gns.

The sale saw averages drop in all sections but for many more sold as 21 shearling ewes averaged £394 (15 x £435 in 2020) with five ewe lambs at £338, four aged rams at £236 (1 x £399) and 29 shearling rams at £444 (22 x £506). No ram lambs were sold.

First to sell for that 650gns top price when knocked down to Lorna and Victoria Gregory for their Bursyepark flock near Boyton, Launceston, was Colin’s shearling ewe called Freckleton Freckles. She is sired by Brickrow Bronze and out of the Hackney Waldo daughter, Freckleton Calla.

Louise Elworthy received her 650gns bid from J Lukehurst, Hinxhill, Ashford, for her first shearling ram on offer, Fingle Flying Scotsman, which is by Finniness Comic and out of Fingle Cappicino, a Swell Angus daughter.

The same buyer paid a further 600gns for the very next lot, Fingle Fleming, which is again by Finniness Comic and out of a Swelle Angus daughter, this time Fingle Dawn.
