A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO PURCHASE ABERFIELD CROSS EWES FROM AN EXEMPLARY DERBYSHIRE FLOCK 

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Hough Park Farm flock of 600+ Aberfield cross ewes (including some pure bred Lleyn ewes) are available for sale.

This is a rare opportunity to purchase ewes from a high quality, well managed flock – not to be missed. 

The flock has been closed for 10 years, only introducing high index rams. The ewes are on the Heptavac P system, all ewes have been given Toxovax as ewe lambs and were all mineral bloused pre-tupping. 

The ewes available range from shearlings to five crop ewes.

 

The ewes are scanned in lamb, averaging 185% and are due to lamb in early March.

Shearling ewes are in lamb to high index Innovis Highlander rams.

Remaining ewes are in lamb to high index Aberfield rams.

 

To be sold Friday 11/12/20 by Bagshaws. After the ‘Final Round Up’ 2020 store sheep sale.
