Breed Record broken at the Northern Area Branch Sale
The breed record price obtained for a Suffolk sheep was well and truly broken at the Northern Area Branch sale held at Stirling Agricultural Centre with a 90,000gn bid. The previous record has stood since 1998 when Stockton Almighty was sold for 75,000gns. The record breaker came late in the sale from Dan Tynan, Ardlea, Co. Laois and shown by Shepherd Pat Greaney. This was the icing on the cake as there was a clearance rate of almost 87 per cent and 82 rams obtained 1,000gns or better.
