Pedigree Texel flock to be sold.

A flock of highly respected pedigree Texel sheep is expected to attract a great deal of interest from prospective buyers when auctioned at Scrainwood, Alnham, near Alnwick, on Wednesday, September 14.

Youngs Chartered Surveyors recently negotiated the purchase of the farm for a client and the auction is a genuine dispersal sale as a result of a change in farm policy.

The Scrainwood flock, which has an excellent reputation, was established about 16 years ago. Approximately 50 rams are sold annually at Kelso Tup Sales, averaging in excess of pounds 600.

Diana Walton, of Alnwick-based Youngs Chartered Surveyors, who are managing the sale for the new owner of Scrainwood Farm, said: "This is a rare opportunity to acquire quality pedigree Texel sheep, as demand for Texel progeny is continuing to increase in the commercial market place."

The auction will be conducted in association with Michael Walton of Roseden Farm, Wooperton, near Alnwick.
