Another large entry of just under 2,000 Prime Sheep on Tuesday began at a slow rate but found trade improving quite markedly as the sale went on.  There were a lot more heavy lambs about this week as well.  Trade was best for 40kg+ lambs, averaging 151p/kg.  A top price of 171p/kg went to M & M Carr, Burton for Texel lambs purchased by Jim Hadwin, Butcher of Mansergh for £70.  Lambs also sold to a top of £79 per head to E J Hodgson & Son, Lambrigg Head purchased by A Dawson.  This was closely followed at £77.50 by Messrs Clarke, Low Longmire & WS Burrow & Sons, Gibraltar Farm.   Cast Sheep were a pretty competitive trade throughout selling to £94 for a Suffolk ram from D E & S M Moorhouse, High House.   Earlier in the day Jeff Burrow, Thursgill showed a tidy run of newly calved Dairy Heifers to a top price of £1,900.
