One of the most highly-respected Texel flocks in the business has announced details of its dispersal, sparking interest from both established and new breeders.

John Foster's Springhill Flock is set to be dispersed at 7pm on Friday, September 15, and will be staged at Beatties Pedigree Centre, Omagh.

The sale is prompted by a change in farming policy following an unfortunate accident in 2022.

John extends a warm welcome to his dispersal sale, which incorporates a lifetime of dedicated breeding, resulting in the multi-award-winning flock being widely recognised for its performance and consistency.

The sale will include stock ewes, flush ewes, gimmers and ewe lambs.

The beauty of a dispersal sale is that you have the unique opportunity to snap up the very best females within this high-performing flock, and ones that would not be offered for sale.

Many of the females are sired by the acclaimed Annaghdown Edoardo, who was Reserve Champion at Blessington in 2021 when he was added to the Springhill flock as new stock ram.

The Fosters have been beyond delighted with his progeny, and feel that their dispersal offers buyers something special in terms of a mix of new bloodlines teamed up with proven females.

Other successful stock sires include Haddoo Fortune, Kilduff Ethan and Ballynoe House Action Man.

The Springhill flock represents 40 years of successful breeding, with a small amount of ET work carried out on top ewes in recent years.

Many of the lots set to go under the hammer are ET born progeny, with a particularly good run of ewe lambs featuring.

There are approximately 90 lots catalogued for the Springhill dispersal, and this also includes a handful of Milford, Suftex and Chartex lambs.

The Springhill Charollais flock have also consigned 10 pedigree ewe lambs.

All stock are eligible for export, with the flock having scrapie monitored status.

The sale will be held at Beatties, No. 109 Glenpark Road, Omagh, and also on Marteye.
