With well over a thousand lambs forward today and all weights of lambs on offer there was plenty for the full ringside of buyers to choose from.  With buyers reporting sales being easier and export trade a little quieter trade overall slipped back by a couple of pence to under the £2 a kilo mark leaving the average at 198p/kg.  Lambs topped at £92.50 for Texels from WH Kitching & Son, Hawes Farm and purchased by Michael Lomax.  Top price of 239p per kilo this week went to AE Atkinson & Son, Stubb Farm for their pen of 35kg Texel lambs selling to J Hadwin of Mansergh for £83.50 per head.  

Cast Sheep were once again a fantastic trade and the majority forward were horned ewes with all classes still selling to the extremely high rates of recent sales.  Top price in this section went to Mr TJ Winder of Gaisgill Row Farm for a pen of four Texel ewes at £106 a piece.  

A small show of calves forward met a fantastic trade with a 3 week old Limousin heifer to £270 and a 3 week old Angus bull calf to £170 both from J G & B J Escolme of Low Stanger Thwaite.  Black and white bull calves, of which the majority were killing calves, were £40-£70.

As the sheep and lamb season comes to an end, a small show of Breeding Sheep were forward to a full ring of buyers.  Once again trade did not disappoint vendors with Mule Hoggs with young single lambs selling to £170 for 2 pens of sheep from Mr J A Hunter of Dent.
