North West Auctions Kendal Mart held its weekly sale of Prime Hoggs, Cast Ewes and Rearing Calves on Tuesday. Many more hoggs could have been sold to advantage as a full ringside of buyers were keen to purchase stock. Hoggs averaged a wonderful 186.4p/kg all through with well over half the hoggs forward being hill breeds. Export type hoggs were regularly breaking the £2 a kilo barrier. Top price per kilo of 212p/kg was twice achieved this week. Firstly by P Whitton, Beech Tops for 41kg hoggs (£87) purchased by B Riley & Sons, Dunnockshaw. EM Standing, Kirkett Nook also got 212p/kg (£82.50) with his 39kg Texels selling to Robert Skelton, Dearham. Top price per head of £95 went to BJ Bowness, Chapel Field for Texel x purchased by Michael Lomax of Bolton. Mules were 175-180p/kg and Horned hoggs also in great demand regularly 160-170p/kg.

A smaller show of cast sheep forward but all classes seriously sought after. Good Continental x ewes regularly selling for £90-£100 with a top price of £110 going to G, GU & D Swarbrick, Kate Farm. Mule ewes were £80-£90 and good fit Horned sheep £60-£70 with plainer types £40-£45.
