Hampshire Downs met a solid trade at the NSA Kelso Ram Sale.  Several breeders had 100% clearances with an overall clearance of 73%.  Prices were back which is true for many breeds at sales this year, with a top price of £400 for a ram from the Lecropt flock, shearling rams averaged £305.   Quality of stock forward was good recognising the need for strong well-produced stock which is of particular importance at the NSA Ram Sales. A positive result in a difficult year with plenty of interest from repeat buyers.
