Lancaster Monday 04/10 primestock

Posted Tuesday, 05 October 2010, 12.20pm

North West Auctions Lancaster Mart held their weekly sale of primestock last Monday.
The early morning sale of prime lambs saw prices rather steadier than the previous week mainly as a result of the trade having dropped over the last few days. Standard lambs averaged 148.39p/kg selling to a top of 166p/kg from Messrs Bolland, Yeat House whose lambs were bought by MJ Birtwistle butcher of Worsley. Mr Birtwistle also purchased the top price lambs per head at £69.50 from Messrs ME Wannop & Sons, Heaton Hall.

In the prime the cattle ring there were less good butchers cattle around which was disappointing. However, those that were here were once again a very tidy trade selling to a top of 185.5p/kg. This was for a Belgian Blue x Heifer from Mrs B Rayton, Winston purchased by Mr Roy Schofield for Samuel Howarth butchers of Diggle. Mr Schofield also purchased the next top price at 184.5p/kg from Mr P Taylor, High Platt Farm, this animal also went to Messrs Howarth butchers.

A small entry of cast ewes were maybe just a shade easier but still very good to sell topping at £69 for
Texel x ewes from David Prickett, Farleton House.
