Posted Wednesday, 27 October 2010, 1.00pm

North West Auctions Lancaster Mart had forward 1000 prime sheep and 50 prime cattle and bulls last Monday.

Prime lambs were a reasonable trade considering the trade had fallen throughout the previous week. The sale averaged over 146p/kg for all breeds selling to a top of 163p/kg for Texel lambs from J M Sanderson, Lower Highfield, purchased by Roy Schofield for Sam Howarth Ltd, Butchers of Diggle. Top price per head was £74 for Texels from Messrs Kelsall, Brown Brook again purchased by Roy Schofield

A small entry of ewes were dear and many buyers were left short of requirements. A top price of £93 went to A J Ellis, Sandy Hill for Texel ewes. In the cattle ring, an excellent top price of 184.5p/kg went to regular vendors Messrs Rayton, Winston. This was for a Limousin heifer purchased by C J Bowker butcher of Bolton-le-Sands. More cattle of this type could easily have been sold.

Prime Bulls were forward in greater numbers and were good to sell. A top of 166.5p/kg went to TH & D Cornthwaite Low Tarn Green who sold an excellent run of quality bulls. The top price was purchased by G Blacklidge butcher of Chorley.
