I have this morning listed  the shearling tups on the website that will be going to Kelso Ram sales if not sold off farm beforehand. 307, 306 and 319 are the pick of them suited for pedigree breeding in my view. 307 is a phenoninal growthy sheep, he was 38kg at 8weeks and has a scan weight of 72.5 kg.

This award is presented to the English Signet performance recorded flock that makes the greatest improvement in the breeding potential of the lamb crop during the previous year.

I have been forced into having my website rebuilt in  modern software as my old Mac software iWeb had become unsupported and wouldn't work any longer. The news page of this is very different so i am experimenting. this is a photo of Whitehead Gladiator on his working holiday at the Rennisons flock at Elsham. He then has an onward trip to Penrith  at the end of the month to see Dan Fawcett to have some semen stored all being well.
