Prime sheep numbers continue to hold up very well at NWA Kendal. This week another excellent entry of more than 2,000 prime sheep met a sharper trade than the previous week to average a very pleasing 169ppk. As expected fed lambs were in much demand selling to a top price of 200ppk for a super quality pen of Beltex lambs from John Thompson, Poppy Farm. These were 40kg and were sold at £80 to Jim Hadwin, Butcher of Mansergh.  

Cast ewes were in great demand with bidders falling over themselves to buy from the strongest lowland ewes to the plainest hill sheep. A top mark of £127 went to C B Hoggarth, Davy Bank for a good pen of Continental ewes. Mule ewes were good to sell all day with several pens over £80   It was great to see new faces coming forward with lambs and ewes to sell with confidence at Kendal   Only a few black and white bull calves but they sold up to £50
