A pen of pure Oxford prime lambs topped the sale of new season lambs held at Rugby Farmers Mart, Stoneleigh on 9th April, making £161 per head.   Consigned from Martin Johnson's Longfriday flock at Wollaston, Northamptonshire they weighed in at 49.5kg.  This excellent sale result demonstrates the outstanding weight for age performance that the Oxford is capable of and shows that the breed can compete with, and indeed, outperform the Texel, Charollais and other terminal sire breeds.
