The article presents information on several sheep sales across England. A good entry for Ashford Market's first Friday sale of the season saw several pens of prime lambs on offer, as well as strong store prices. Topping a dispersal of the Inwardleigh pedigree Charolais herd on behalf of the Hooper family in Holsworthy was the herd's senior stock bull Moynton Valkyrie. Topping the annual Southdown sale at Maidstone was Jim and Patsy Crundwell's shearling ram from their Ladywell flock in Tunbridge Wells.
