The young auctioneer!

5th May 2020

Lockdown has given one young NSA Wales & Border Ram Sales regular the opportunity to hone up his auctioneering skills! And what could be better than for eight year old Iestyn Dillon, with the help of his six year old brother, Iwan, to act out a scene he has watched so many times!

They have been attending the sale since their earliest days with dad, Neil Dillon.  They’re also familiar with shows and marts as their parents run the cafe at Sennybridge Mart and they’re keen on showing their sheep.

Iestyn has previously won the Junior Young Handler class at the RWAS Spring Festival, with Iwan having hoped to excel this year. They have also won breed championships at the RWAS Winter Fair and various local shows.

Farming is very much in the blood and the family run around 80 ewes from a range of different breeds on their farm near Brecon.  Neil also runs Golden Valley Catering and his wife, Rhian, is a teacher.
