Pedigree Sheep

Outstanding pedigree stock from many of Scotland’s top flock masters.

Thainstone Mart is a well-recognised centre for pedigree sheep with the highlight being the September multi-breed ram sale. This event regularly attracts 800 entries. Purchasers come from all over Scotland with Shetland buyers often to the fore. A second multi-breed sale is held later in the season with an entry of around 500.

The North of Scotland’s top female pedigree sheep sale

The top female pedigree sale of the year is held as part of the famed Christmas Classic event at the beginning of December. This show and sale is becoming increasingly popular with up to 200 head competing in show classes followed by a sale. In 2015 a Texel gimmer sold for 4,000gns.
