History of the Ram Sales

The first Ram Sale was held in the Knowes in Kelso( now a car park ) in 1836 when the Society acted as arbiters to private bargaining before the first sale by auction in 1838 when 120 rams were offered, at prices ranging from three to six pounds per head.

The next significant date was 1850 when the railway came to Kelso, which paved the way for flockmasters from far afield to sell at the Sales. In 1851 652 rams were offered. The Sales grew in size, quality and reputation and in 1993 broke the two million pound barrier when 6000 tups changed hands. The numbers have evened out and in 1999 6013 tups were sold. There are between five and six hundred consignors from all over the United Kingdom and Eire. In the last few years rams have been exported to three EU countries, Holland, Germany and Eire, confirming the Ram sales as the biggest and most famous one day sale of rams in the world.
