Campsie Drambuie: Ram sells for astonishing £65,000
Speaking after the purchase, John said: “There’s two times people sell sheep – as ram lambs or a year older as a shearlings - and this is the highest price ever paid at Kelso for a texel shearling.
"When we saw him he was everything we were looking for. He had great size and he was visually attractive and had a good performance index.
"We knew he was going to make money because he was the best we’d ever seen. I believe there were four parties grouped together bidding against us.”
The UK record for a texel shearling ram is £110,000.
