North West Auctions Lancaster Mart held its weekly sale of Primestock.
A reduced entry of prime lambs were forward and as expected trade matched the prices of late last week to average 152p/kg. A pen of Texel lambs made top price per head of £69 and these were presented by Capernwray Parkland Farm. Top price per kilo of 176p/kg again for Texels went to Mr P Cummings of Holme Fields. Cast sheep were as good as ever for both lowland and fell ewes. Top price of £91 was paid for Charollais ewes from JA & R Geldard, Low Foulshaw Farm. A more commercial entry of cattle than normal were forward with prices reflecting the quality. However, trade was thoroughly decent and on the day a full clearance resulted. Clean cattle topped at 163.5p/kg for a Limousin Heifer from TH Garnett & Son, New Close. Bulls topped at 166.5p/kg from TH & D Cornthwaite, Low Tarn Green.
