Posted Tuesday, 16 November 2010, 1.10pm

North West Auctions Lancaster Mart had forward an increased entry of 1267 prime sheep together with 34 prime cattle and bulls.

Prime lambs averaged 155p/kg throughout but it was the standard weight lambs up to 40kg that were most sought after averaging 159.5p/kg. Top price of £74 was jointly achieved for Texel lambs presented by ME Wannop & Sons, Heaton Hall and AG Butler, Parks Farm Barn. Both lots were purchased by Lancaster Meat Co Ltd. TR Prickett, Hutton Roof Hall also had Texel lambs at £74 and these were also the top price per kilo at 185p/kg purchased by Roy Schofield for Samuel Howarth Ltd, butchers of Diggle.

A reduced entry of prime cattle again found best butcher types in great demand. Several butcher’s orders remain unfulfilled each week. The sale topped a 178.5p/kg for a Continental heifer from GA Haston & Son, Lane House purchased by Samuel Howarth Ltd. Heifers also topped at £808.80 from TH Garnett & Son, New Close again purchased by Samuel Howarth Ltd.
Prime bulls were of mixed quality but all bulls were well sold on the day. A top price of 160.5p/kg went to P & A Bell, Village Farm for a British Blue bull purchased by MJ Birtwistle, butcher of Worsley.

A small entry of prime ewes were better to sell than expected averaging £52 and selling to £86.
