Texel Female Invitational Sales – 2012

Texel Female Invitational Sales 2012

The six invitational sales dealt with in this summary again attracted large audiences of prospective buyers at their respective venues.

In total 53 flocks from throughout the UK were represented and deserve an immense amount of credit for the general high standard offerings.

In spite of the absence of prices in excess of 20,000gns, there was a marginal increase in the overall price average. However 10% less gimmers found new homes. Consignors unanimously indicated that demand for the top quality animals in lamb to influential sire was as strong as ever. However plainer gimmers, lacking size and tight fleeces often failed to reach modest reserves, set by their consigners.

As regards the background genetics of the top 30 gimmers, no fewer than 16 sires featured. However by far the most successful sire was the 40,000gn 2011 “Sire of the year” – Glenside Razzle Dazzle – FPG1000055. IIn addition to his numerous high priced daughters at the 6 invitational sales, he also sired the top priced gimmers at two of the leading Scottish collective sales held at Stirling & Thainstone.

In spite of the current economic gloom prevailing within the UK commercial sheep industry, the majority of Texel breeders are very optimistic about their 2013 forthcoming sales prospects.
