About Nelson Sheep Sales
The Nelson Sheep Sales are one of the few remaining grass site sales in Wales and are special, in that the vast majority of the sheep offered for sale, come from within a 10-mile radius of the sale site. The atmosphere created at the sales is unique, and is a regular fixture in many farmers diaries.
The sales specialise in selling NELSON TYPE SOUTH WALES MOUNTAIN draft ewes and breeding rams, with many of the vendors having sold at the sales for several generations. This has built up a confidence amongst buyers, some of whom have also bought for several generations, because they know the sheep are genuine.
The ewe sale regularly offers 2,500 sheep for sale, comprising of mainly, 3 & 4-year-old draft ewes, but also 5-600 yearlings. This gives the purchaser a wide choice of top-quality stock suitable for every need.
The Ram sales attracts over 200 entries from most of the top breeders within the breed, and again offers purchasers a wide choice.
The sales are run by Glyn Davies Auctioneer, a small family business, who are determined to keep the sales going. Glyn has been involved in the sales for over forty years and is therefore ideally placed to advise any prospective purchaser on the quality of sheep on offer, and which would best suit their needs.
