A larger show of over 2100 lambs were put before a ringside of no less than ten active buyers.  Although trade was easier throughout the country than that of the previous day a very respectable average of 178p/kg was achieved which was well in line with other centres in the area.  Top price per head was £88.50 for a pen of Texel lambs from Mr M Coates, Ulpha Farm and the top price per kilo of 209p was achieved by Mr EA Harrison, Scarside Farm for his pen of Texel x lambs which were purchased by B Riley & Sons, Dunnockshaw.
