As lamb numbers climb steadily and with fresh meat firms in attendance for the first time a very pleasing overall average of 232p/kg was achieved.  Trade topped at 336p/kg for a marvellous pen of 36kg Texel x lambs from AE Atkinson & Son, Stubb Farm, and these lambs were also the top price per head selling at £121 each purchased by Andrew Atkinson, Harrogate.  Once again all weights of lambs were good to sell with buyers eager to fill orders.  

Only a handful of hoggs around topping at £82 per head and averaging 152.58p/kg.  

Trade for cast sheep remains very strong with all classes of cast sheep much sought after by eight active buyers at the ringside resulting in an overall average of £70.66.  Trade topped at £106 for a pen of big Texel x ewes from RT & ME Sutton, Crosscrake Farm.  Mule ewes topped at £101 a head with horned sheep to £100 for a pen of Rough Fells and plenty of pens of leaner type Swaledales at £45-£55.  

A small entry of Mule hoggs with single lambs at Foot sold to £170 from JA Hunter, Brackensghyll.
