Kendal Tuesday 16/11

Posted Wednesday, 17 November 2010, 1.10pm

North West Auctions Kendal Mart held their weekly sale of primestock last Tuesday. With the national trade falling since last week there was a reduced entry of 1404 prime lambs together with 335 cast ewes and 22 bull calves.

As expected prime lambs were less money than the previous week to average 153.59p/kg. Yet again lambs below 40kg were in most demand. However the top price of the day was 175p/kg which was given to JM & DJ Bowes, Low Bundrigg whose Texel lambs were purchased by B Riley & Sons, butchers of Burnley. The top price per head was £72.50 which went to J Allonby & Son, Greenhead. Their quality Cheviot lambs were purchased by Cornvale Foods, butchers of Melling.

Once again cast ewes were a very competitive trade selling to a top of £75 twice for pens of Texel ewes from WI Barrow & Sons, Jackson Ground and TE, JS & SA Carruthers, Red Scar.

A small entry of bull calves were nearly all Black & White. However the top price was £105 going to JJ & MA Park & Son, Low Sizergh Farm.
