Kelso Ram Sales ’17

A successful day at Kelso Ram Sales saw 4452 rams sell to average £709.63 and an 82% clearance. Top price was £23,000 for a Texel shearling from the Wights at Midlock, who also led the Bluefaced Leicester section, selling a shearling at £12,000.

We ended up taking mainly Texels, as there was a steady stream of them heading out to be photographed. See below for some of the top priced lots, with more in the Photo Sales section.
