Club Report 2012

Club Sale at Gaerwen on Saturday 18th August 2012
We had another excellent sale again this year. The shearling trade was strong throughout with the highest price in excess of 1,000 guineas. Ram lamb trade was steady and there was a very good demand for females.

Helen Smith from Penparc kindly judged the pre sale show and awarded the male and show champion to Llawes Tex, bred by Iwan Parry Jones. Tex went on to be sold to John Lloyd of Mon Texels.

Helen picked a Llyfni Port Royal sired shearling ewe, bred by J&H Thomas as the female and reserve champion.

Flock Competition
The flock competition was well supported this year and our judge Cefin Pryce did not get back home until well after dark. We had a very enjoyable day and after some deliberation he awarded the champion flock to Wyn Morris, Fachell. Congratulations to Wyn and thank you to everyone who took part.

Flock Visit
We headed north for our visit this year. We went to Stainton to see Peter Woof’s flock. We saw an impressive selection of sheep and were treated to an excellent buffet. We were there at the right time to see the latest litter of sheepdog puppies which everyone fell in love with.

Shows
Congratulations to everyone who took part and won in the local and national sales. Club member John Owen, Hen Gapel did especially well this year. On his first time selling at Lanark his Humeston Rarity sired ram lamb, Hen Gapel Thunder took second place in the novice class. It went on to sell to Deveronvale for £15,000 guineas.
