There was jubilation at the recent West of Ireland Lanark Breeders ram sale when the hammer fell at €3,100 for the third prize winning ram produced by the Yeats County flock and purchased by Michael Ketch for his Trenearla flock in Co Waterford.

The hogget ram was judged as overall champion of the sale by judges John Dempsey and sons from Tipperary while the reserve champion was produced by the Currag Du Blackface flock.
