Sheffield Ewe Sale

Due to the drought the Sheffield Ewe Sale was bigger than usual. On offer were some 12000 ewes and a hundred rams. The sale yard had to be extended to accommodate them all. Hopefully, all the sheep went home to different farms tonight.

The sale gets under way. A few of the many stock trucks can be seen lined up on the roadside.

The sheep are auctioned pen by pen.
The rams in front take an interest in the proceedings. Their turn will come.
