We are delighted to have acquired two exciting prospects at the Scottish National Texel Sale at Lanark on 22nd August.
Hilltop Cobra is by 26,000gn Sportsmans Benchmark out of a ewe by 60,000gn Strathbogie Yes Sir. Cobra was much admired at the sale and was Hilltop’s stand out lamb of 2019. After a bidding battle he was purchased for 7,000gn and is shared with Avon Vale and Stonebridge flocks.
Firgrove Class Act is by 40,000gn Garngour Alabama out of an Eden Valley ewe who is by 30,000gn Knock Yankee.
Both lambs were selected due to their correctness, carcass and skin and they both have excellent EBV’s too.
Commenting on the purchases Paul said “In my opinion Cobra was the best sheep at Lanark and I am delighted that we bought him as I had expected him to sell for much more. Both sheep handle exceptionally well and will add to the flock, I am already getting excited about lambing time!”
