Kendal Friday 10/09 Ambleside Fair

Posted Monday, 13 September 2010, 11.21am

North West Auctions Kendal Mart held the Annual Ambleside Fair sale of gimmer lambs and store lambs on Friday. A catalogue entry of 2700 lambs encouraged a ring full of buyers from throughout the UK. Mule gimmer lambs averaged an excellent £76 per head and most vendors were very satisfied on the day. Masham gimmer lambs were also in much demand to average £73.10. There was also a strong trade for Suffolk & Continental gimmers. Top priced Mule lambs made £102 for lambs produced by TLB & J Knowles, High Borrowbridge. Mashams sold to £90 from MH Gorst, Mutton Hall.
Store lambs were easier than recent sales despite a large crowd of customers.
