Once again another good show of 1,700 sheep forward for sale with a lot more hill breed lambs forward than last week and prices still remaining firm.  The best export type lambs were, once again, in good demand regularly 210-220p/kg topping at 224p/kg.  A top price head went to a pen of continental lambs from Messrs Carruthers of Underbarrow at £93 per head to Lancaster Meats.  

Cast Sheep. These were a firmer trade on the week with all classes of sheep being much sought after.  These topped at £118 for a Charolais Ram from Messrs Burrow of Silverdale and a Teeswater Rams to £109 from J A Bennett of Longsleddale.  Mule ewes were regularly £80-90.  Horned sheep were also very easy top sell with plain ewes looking particularly dear on the day.   A small entry of young Black & White bull calves topped at £35 from W Garnett & Son, Ackenthwaite.
