Posted Monday, 30 August 2010, 11.08am

North West Auctions Lancaster Mart held its weekly sale of Primestock and as usual the Bank Holiday meant less numbers on offer in each section. Not the best show of prime lambs forward but a sharp trade was seen throughout ending up with an overall average of 164.2p/kg. Top price went to JE & J Pye, Gibsons Farm for Texel lambs selling at £75.50 per head & 189p/kg.

Cast Ewes remained a very similar trade on the week with very little variance in the average on the week of £55.33.

Top price of £79 was paid for Texel ewes from JM & MH France, Newhouse Farm.

Prime cattle numbers were reduced but there was some good quality on offer and all classes met a keen trade.

Top price of 207.5p/kg (£1022.98) was paid for a Belgian Blue Heifer from GE Jackson, Hill Top.
