Shetland Livestock Marketing Group in conjunction with Aberdeen & Northern Marts sold 3371 head of breeding sheep at their annual special sale on Saturday 26th September.

Gimmers were a mixed show for quality and the few good pens met an excellent demand.  Ewe Lambs and quality ewes met a fast selling trade and more could have been sold.
