Chelford report 5th September




Todays sale of Bleu du Maine and Millenium Bleu sheep for the Society at Chelford peaked at 600 gns for the best of a pen of Millenium Bleu shearling rams from Paul Farmer, Ashover, Derbyshire.  By an Aintree Ram and out of a ewe by Langley Charlie Boy, he was snapped up by M W Procter, Alvaston, Cumbria.


Another Millenium Bleu shearling ram, this time from Richard Pilkington’s Aintree flock, based near Wrexham, and similarly bred, made 580 gns to L H Wardle Bromsgrove, Worcestershire.


Mr Farmer also led the Millenium Bleu ram lambs, with his son of Headlind Dynamic, the former Royal Highland Show Champion, again out of a ewe by Langley Charlie Boy, which made 500 gns to J T Crowther, Sowerby Bridge, West Yorkshire.


It was a Millenuim Bleu gimmer from Paul Farmer which topped the female section of the sale, when a February 2015 born gimmer from his Moorlands Flock made 450 gns to W Stamper, Chipping, near Preston.
