LANCASTER HITS A RISING LAMB TRADE

NW Auctions Lancaster had forward an improved entry of 1150 prime sheep on Monday.

Prime Lambs showed a marked improvement on price to follow a rising trade the previous week. There were several fresh buyers in the ring and this helped produce an excellent sale average of almost 160 pp kg. Lambs up to 40kh actually averaged 163pp kg.

TOP PRICE OF 180p/kg WENT TO T R Prickett, Hutton Roof Hall, whose 38kg Texels made £68.50 and were bought by Roy Schofield for Samuel Howarth Butcher of Diggle. Lambs also sold to £75 to Exors S P Pease whose Texels were bought by Lancaster Meat Co

A small entry of ewes failed to satisfy rising demand.

In the Cattle Ring a reduced entry could have been sold twice over. A top price of 182.50 pp kg went yet again to Ambrose Rayton, Winston Farm for a smart heifer bought by Samuel Howarth, Butcher of Diggle. The same butcher also picked up the top priced steer from T H Garnett & Son New Hall at 165.5p kg
