The Cumberland & Dumfriesshire Farmers Mart held their annual sale of Cheviot Mule ewe lambs and gimmer shearlings at Longtown on Tuesday August 22nd 2006.

Cheviot Mule

A record entry of 3000 saw strong demand for the better sorts, particularly those out of the North Country Cheviot ewe.

Those selling lambs out of the South Country ewe found buyers much more selective, with many lots looking excellent value. Shearling gimmers met a good demand and more could have been sold.
