  Most expensive sheep-world record set by Deveronvale Perfection

 LANARK, UK -- Deveronvale Perfection, a Scottish ram, has sold for a staggering 231,000 pounds ($347,000) -setting the new world record for the Most expensive sheep.

   The world record sheep could make its new owner, a good return and go on to be worth millions after selling its semen and progeny around the world.

   The sheep was sold at the Scottish National Texel Sale at Lankark Market. The pedigree ram was bred by Graham Morrison, of Banff, and bought by Fraserburgh farmer Jimmy Douglas.

   The high price has been put down to the sheep's strong physical attributes. Breeder Graham Morrison, of Banff, Scotland, says he was staggered by the price but insists Deveronvale Perfection lives up to his name.

   Deveronvale Perfection broke the seven-year-old British record of around 134,000 pounds for a Texel ram and the world record for a sheep in Australia in the 1980s.

    Britain's previous most expensive sheep, Tophill Joe, was bought for 128,000 pounds six years ago. He died recently after fathering lambs worth more than 1 million pounds.

    John Yates, Chief Executive of the Texel Sheep Society, said the industry was shocked by the high price.

   "The staggering amount surprised many. A lot of people see these animals as lamb chops, but these flocks are at the top of the genetic pile. This was the elite animal that stood out," he said. "Most people would see it as a ridiculous price for a sheep but, for a sheep breeder, it is an investment," he added.
