Lancaster Monday 22/11

Posted Monday, 22 November 2010, 1.09pm

North West Auctions Lancaster Mart enjoyed a much improved lamb trade this week and many more lambs could easily have been sold at the Monday morning sale.

In fact the early doors start each Monday continues to find favour with buyers, and there were more butchers and wholesalers in the ring this week. Handy weight lambs were in demand from start to finish to average 158.5p/kg. A top price of 191p/kg went to D & DW Prickett, Farleton House for Texel lambs purchased by Roy Schofield for MJ Birtwistle butchers of Worsley. Top price per head of £75 was achieved by the Exors of SP Pease and again these were purchased by MJ Birtwistle butchers. Close behind at £74.50 was CR Eastwood of Overdale whose Suffolk lambs were purchased by Geoff Riley Snr. butcher of Dunnockshaw.

An improved entry of cast ewes were as expected also in much demand. Top price of £76 went to TR Prickett, Hutton Roof Hall for Continental Ewes purchased by Michael Lomax of Bolton.

In the prime cattle ring Ambrose Rayton, Winston, continued his excellent run of weekly cattle selling to a top of 183.5p/kg for a Limousin heifer which was purchased by Roy Schofield for Samuel Howarth Ltd butchers of Diggle. A similar entry of prime bulls were mainly of commercial grade. However, good quality Continentals were in demand selling to 169.5p/kg for a Limousin from TH & D Cornthwaite, Low Tarn Green and this was purchased by Frank Towers of Wray.
