ANOTHER MARVELLOUS HOGG TRADE AT LANCASTER

An improved entry of 597 prime hoggs were in great demand early on Monday morning. The overall sale average was 206.35p/kg selling to a top of 229p/kg twice. Firstly to T & E Burrow, Throstle Grove for a pen of 41kg Charollais x hoggs and then to V & EJ Chadwick & Sons, Sowerby Lodge for a pen of 41kg Texel x hoggs. Both lots were purchased at £94 per head by Roy Schofield for Samuel Howarth butchers of Diggle. Hoggs also sold to a top price per head of £110 (190p/kg) from J Birkett & Son, Fanny House Farm for a pen of Texel x hoggs which sold to Lancaster Meat Co.

A small entry of cast ewes met a similar trade to average £76.50 selling to a top of £124 for Texel bred from S Wilson & Son, Burrow Heights.

A small entry of only 20 prime cattle proved way short of buyers requirements with quality prime heifers much sort after and in short supply. A top price of 179.5p/kg was paid for a Limousin heifer from Ambrose Rayton, Winston and was purchased by MJ Birtwistle & Co., Worsley. Mrs JA Airey, Old Croft took the top price per kilo in the bull ring and the Limousin was bought by Frank Towers, Wray at 177.5p/kg.
