Speaking to Agriland ahead of the sale, Hilary said: “We are excited for the upcoming sale this weekend. We had a two successful viewing days over the weekend of what will be on offer.

“The sale is to mark Malcom’s 60th birthday which was disrupted for the third year in a row due to Covid-19 and is the reason why we are hoping to put forward sixty sheep for the sale.

“In many ways, we have been building up for this weekend for 30 years – which is when we started breeding pedigree sheep – so we can’t wait for it now.”
