The Scottish national Texel sale took place in Lanark last week with a new world record price set for a sheep. The sale was set alight as ram lamb Sportsman Double Diamond sold for 350,000gns (£367,500 or over €411,000).

This super lamb was bred by Charlie Boden and family and secured in a three-way split for the Auldhouseburn, Procters and New View flocks.
