North West Auctions Kendal Mart held its weekly sale of prime sheep and once again a full ringside of buyers ensured a marvellous trade for all classes of hoggs forward with a large proportion of the hoggs being hill breeds. Trade was up some 7p/kg on the week to leave a super overall average of 199.32p/kg. First cross hoggs 38-42kgs were in great demand and regularly selling between 220p – 232p/kg. Top price per kilo of 232p went to DA Sunter, Low Bendrigg Farm for his 41kg Texels selling to Robert Skelton, Dearham for £95 per head. Heavy hoggs were also good to sell with 45-50kg hoggs selling between £95 and £100 per head with the top price of £100 twice achieved for Texel x hoggs from Fishwick Farms, Bank House Farm which were purchased by Robert Skelton and then again for Texels from TE, JS & SA Carruthers, Red Scar this time bought by Micheal Lomax of Bolton. Hill breed hoggs were just as good to sell with the majority of sheep being well above the 180p/kg mark.
