A large gallery of Marlborough, local and Malvern buyers attended a full yarding of adult ewes at the second leg of the two-day Hawarden Ewe Sale held last week.

Buyers bid strongly on the younger and recognised lines, however, the lighter condition and lower mouthed ewes were harder to sell. Realistic prices were reached overall.

The two-tooth sale was held on January 28 and the ewe sale on January 31.
