North West Auctions Lancaster Mart held their weekly sale of primestock last Monday morning.
A reduced entry of lambs met a rather sharper trade to average more than 156p/kg for all weights and grades. There were more buyers in the market and there was particular demand for better quality lambs. A top price of 176p/kg went to D & DW Prickett, Farleton House for Texel x lambs purchased by Michael Lomax of Bolton. A top price per head of £75 was achieved by Messrs Jones, Sandvilla for Texel x lambs bought by MN Alam of Blackburn. Both Messrs J Bargh & Son, North Farm & P Cummings, Holme Fields achieved a price of £72 for quality Texel lambs and these were purchased by Whittakers Butchers of Walney Island and Lancaster Meat Company respectively. Mr JG Stackhouse, Wardfield also achieved £72 for Suffolks again bought by Lancaster Meat Company.

A small entry of cast ewes were once again very good to sell topping at £78 for Texel ewes from T & CM Kelsall & Sons, Brown Brook.

In the cattle ring a similar entry of prime bulls were a shade easier on the week. A top price of 144.5p/kg went to TD & A Gardner, Larbrick Hill Farm for a Charolais which was purchased by Mr Frank Towers.
As always best butchers cattle were in much demand selling to a top of 188.5p/kg. This was for a Limousin heifer produced by A Rayton of Winston which was purchased at £933 by Roy Schofield for Samuel Howarth Butchers of Diggle. Messrs Howarth also purchased a heifer at 183.5p/kg from
Messrs TH Garnett & Son, New Close. There were several butchers orders around the ring on the day many of which did not get filled
