North West Auctions had forward an increased entry of prime sheep at their weekly sale at Kendal Auction Mart last Tuesday.

There were almost 1700 lambs on the market and as always standard weight lambs were in most demand. These averaged

162.5p/kg which on a falling national market was a pleasing result on the day. A top price 181p/kg was achieved by Messrs AE

Atkinson & Son for Texel x lambs which were purchased by Robert Skelton of Cockermouth. The top price of £77.50 was twice

achieved firstly for Suffolk lambs from Messrs Halead, Lawsons Farm and then again by Messrs Hodgson, Lambrigg Head with

Texel lambs.

Another pleasing entry of over 400 prime ewes were once again a better trade than expected. These topped at £82 per head for

Texel x ewes from Mr JE Wightman, Crabtree Farm. Once again Mule & other heavy ewes were in demand selling to a top of £74

from Messrs Hodgson, Mint View.
