Posted Wednesday, 26 January 2011, 3.38pm

North West Auctions Kendal Mart had forward a reduced entry of 621 prime hoggs, 152 cast sheep, 16 calves and 1 dairy cow last Tuesday.

The hogg trade had fallen considerably since the previous Tuesday and the sale average of 170p/kg was perhaps better than expected. Hoggs of all weights, across the board were in demand. A top price of 191p/kg went to LA & M Lambert, Brow Head whose cheviot x hoggs made £70.50 and were purchased by local butcher Jim Hadwin of Mansergh. A top price per head of £86 went to JL Bird, West Plain Farm for Suffolk x hoggs purchased by Lancaster Meats. Close behind at £85 was JR Robinson, Millness Hall whose Texel hoggs were also purchased by Lancaster Meats.

Lightweight hoggs continue to sell fairly well each week. This week’s top price light lambs were £65 per head for Charollais hoggs from D Pearson, Sand Lane. Cast sheep were also a little cheaper on the week selling to a top price of £90 for Continental ewes from CB Hoggarth, High House. Earlier in the day there was only one dairy cow forward from Messrs Drinkall Bros., Catshaw Hall Farm and this sold for a level £1000. A reduced entry of rearing calves were nearly all black & white bulls. However, the top price went to G Cuthbertson, Capplerigg for an Angus x heifer which made £110. Black & White bull calves sold to £100 to RJ & J Gardner, Natland Mill Beck.
