  OFFICIAL 60th ANNIVERSARY ASSOCIATION SALE 2015
Despite the current gloom in the sheep industry as a whole the atmosphere was upbeat at the 60th anniversary sale of Welsh Halfbreds at Ruthin on 2 September.  Averages for ewe lambs were up by over £8 with a number of new buyers in attendance from the East of England and the yearling ewe average was up by more than £1. To mark the anniversary Captain Nick Archdale, founder member of the Association's first Council formed to promote the breeding and collective marketing of Welsh Halfbred females, presented each vendor with a commemorative rosette sponsored by Jones Peckover and Ruthin Farmers' Auction Mart and reminded everyone that in 1958 yearling ewes averaged £11.10/- with ewe lambs averaging £8.15/-.  Captain Archdale watched the sale and presented the Doug Brereton Trophy to Alun Evans, Ffrith Fedw for the best pen of yearling ewes and the ewe lamb trophy to Gwyn Jones, Nant Gwyn as the Champions were in the ring.
