TOP CROSSING RAMS PRODUCING TOP CLASS MULES
The Wales & Borders Registered Crossing Blue Faced Leicester Club announces their Eighteenth annual sale of top crossing sires.
The sale is to be held on TUESDAY 3rd OCTOBER 2017, with a pre-sale show of yearling rams and ram lambs at 12noon with the sale starting at 1.30 p.m.
Once again the club sale will include some of the very best crossing bloodlines that are bred in Wales, many being the progeny of top quality crossing Leicesters purchased in the North of England.
Most of the exhibitors at this sale are also breeders of Welsh Mules who, over the years, have carefully selected Blue Faced Leicester bloodlines that are suitable for crossing onto the native Eppynt Hill & Beulah Speckled Face and Welsh ewes to produce mule lambs of good conformation and with bold markings that are in demand in the Welsh Mule Society sales.
Last autumn’s strong ewe trade once again demonstrated the demand for the Welsh Mule as the breeding ewe of choice for many flockmasters, and the smarter the ewe the smarter the price. Making the choice of a good crossing Leicester pay dividends.
The sale will be held at Brightwells Ltd, Auctioneers, Builth Wells Smithfield Market, which has excellent covered penning and sale ring. Overnight lairage can be arranged.
