Easter Lamb Show and Sale

Posted on 17th April 2014 in Agriculture, Events

We have just returned from the Easter Lamb Show and Sale at Ashford and are thrilled that out of more than 20 pens Hadlow College's top pen came a very creditable 4th, this was a great result from a small group of only 20 ewes, lambing early.

The top pen of 4 lambs at 38kg av. wt. made an excellent £113.00 per head, (297 pence per kg) and all 19 lambs put forward from the College averaged £99.74 per head (275 pence per kg).

Our lambs certainly stood up well against all of the other early lambs and sold very well, a good reflection of the quality produced by Hadlow College.  All of the lambs from the College were purchased by Anglo Dutch Meats at Charing, so no doubt many of them will go to local butchers' shops for the Easter lamb trade.

Well done to all concerned including the staff at Princess Christians Farm.
