KENDAL’S BEST SHOW OF LAMBS THIS SEASON

As lamb numbers continue to climb, a wonderful show of 1,773 lambs and ewes were put before the usual ringside of buyers who were keen to purchase the sheep.  Lambs topped at 223p/kg for a tremendous pen of 39kg Texel x lambs from E A Harrison, Orton, which were purchased by Jim Hadwin of Mansergh for £87.  They also topped at £97 per head for a pen of 47 kg Texel x lambs from Messrs Dodgson of Kendal which again were purchased by Mr Hadwin. There were some fantastic runs of lambs forward which were a credit to all the vendors.  All weights of lambs were greatly sought after with export type lambs levelling at well over £2/kg  

Cast Sheep.  These once again did not disappoint vendors with all classes of Cast Sheep being in much demand.  A pen of Texel x Ewes from Messrs Dodgson of Kendal sold to £119/hd to Mr A Atkinson, Harrogate. There were plenty of pens of Cont x Ewes well in excess of the £100 mark with Mule and Masham ewes selling for £80-£90 topping at £99.  Horned ewes were regularly £70-£80, topping at £87 for a pen of Rough Fell ewes from C Bateman, Docker.  Plainer ewes also looked a wonderful trade.
