Stirling Strictly Ladies Sale – 10

Summarised Report and Sale Analysis

Glenside Razzle Dazzle FPG1000055) daughters dominated the trade at the above sale, with offspring including the 3,000gns supreme champion. This gimmer was consigned by Michael Leggat (Strathbogie flock shepherd), who also received 1,700gns for a full ET sister. They are granddaughters of George Howie’s "magic ewe" HAK05034. Michael Leggat said that he received a generous gift of 6 embryos from Ian Farquar (Insch flock), which resulted in 4 ET sisters, 2 of which he has retained. Ian Farquar had earlier purchased their Glenside Mylord (FPG06779) dam from the Knock flock, prior to her producing 25 Razzle Dazzle embryos.

Jim Innes (Strathbogie), who had another very successful sale at Stirling, following earlier drafts at Carlisle and Thainstone, confirmed that there was a buoyant trade for the top quality gimmers. However, both Jim and George Howie confirmed that demand for the "average gimmer" was near saturation point, with several decent females failing to reach modest reserves in the 300 – 400 gns range. Both breeders stated that in future years all breeders may have to cull harder at the "prime lamb" stage in order to maintain demand for breeding females.
