The article reports that Suffolk breeders have braved the impact of bluetongue restrictions with the sale of high quality meats at the breed society's national show and sale at Shrewsbury, England. It also notes that trade reflected this season's positive demand for Suffolk sires with 25 percent of ram lambs making over four figures. The top call of 8000gns came for the champion from Steven Buckley's Sitlow flock at Buxton. Scottish vendors Kenny and Lucy Mair from Deveronside, Aberdeenshire, made the second highest price of 2800gns.
