CLOSAMECTIN KELSO RAM SALES

Records Galore at 2017 Kelso Ram Sales

Continuous rain on Thursday did not deter buyers from attending the Sales on Friday and from the start, after traditionally the bell was rung at precisely 10 o’clock by Ronald Wilson, Secretary of BUAS, the trade was buoyant throughout the day. There were many satisfied faces, both Consignors and Buyers with the quality of the rams on offer.

The turnover of £3,160,290 was a record, (+7.6%), the first time in excess of £3 million (2016 - and the £2,937,285) and the average of £709.54 was also a record, and the first time breaking the £700 barrier, up £24.06p (3.51%) for 169 more sold (3.92%).

In all there were 101 shearlings sold at £2000 or more and 35 lambs at £1000 or more.

The Border Union is licenced to export high health status Maedi Visnae rams direct from the Sales to Northern Ireland and the number of buyers increases every year with a record total of 103 rams being exported, with also three being bought for export to Eire.

The day vindicated the confidence in the sheep industry with the evidence of buyers faith in that more rams sold (+ 169) with a record turnover, a record average and record exports.
