The article reports on the sale of livestock at Kirkby Stephen in Cumbria, England. A shearling ram, that traces back to a ewe that had bred a £15,000 tup and was donated to help a flock restock after the 2001 foot-and-mouth outbreak, made the top price of £31,000 at the Swaledale Sheep Breeders Association three-day show and sale. Eric Nelson of the renowned Bull and Cave flock at Clapham in Lancaster, sold a shearling at £16,000. And it was a ram bred by Paul Chester that sired Arthur Slack's top-priced ram at £14,000.
