Good quality ram lambs enjoyed a very brisk, but selective, trade with a high proportion achieving prices in the 400 – 800gn range, including many destined for the Orkney & Shetland Islands.

The most successful sire was the 2011 “Sire of the Year”, GLENSIDE RAZZLE DAZZLE (FPG1000055) who had three sons break the 1,000gn mark, two from the INSCH flock and one from the STRATHBOGIE flock respectively.

Sale Champion was BIRNESS SCOTTIE (SGE1100325) by GLENSIDE OFFICER (FPG081268), from George Stuart, which sold for 1,100gns. Clearance rate was 80% with buyers showing little appetite for the poorer quality lambs on offer.
