Kelso Ram Sales are an integral part of the agricultural calendar for sheep farmers and breeders. The sales were established in 1838 and in that time have only been cancelled on two occasions, in 2001 and 2007 both times as a result of an outbreak of Foot and Mouth disease. They are held annually on the second Friday of September and have received entries of over 5,000 animals each year for the last 5 years. There will be around 20 breeds of sheep present including Texel, Suffolks and North Country Cheviot to name but a few – not to mention the various crosses we welcome.
We are extremely grateful to all our Sponsors, Trade Stands, Supporters and off course the Buyers and Sellers for their support of the 2019 Sale and look forward to welcome everyone back on 11th September 2020.
The 2019 results are available below. The top selling shearling was a Blue Faced Leicester which sold for £15,000 whilst a Suffolk made the best price for a lamb at £6,000.

We wish to assure all our stakeholders, partners and visitors that the Border Union Agricultural Society are monitoring the current Coronavirus situation very closely and we remain hopeful that the Border Union Show and Kelso Ram Sales will still go ahead as scheduled. With months to go before these events, we are operating a watching brief and will follow Government advice as and when it becomes available.
