A much bigger show of 2210 prime lambs were presented to a full ringside of buyers with order books to fill.  Once again all weights of lambs were sought after however heavy weight lambs were slightly easier on the week.  Lambs topped at £80.50 per head for a pen of Texel x from EA Harrison, Scarside Farm selling to Riley Bros, Dunnockshaw.  Messrs Harrison also sold a pen of smart Texels for the top price per kilo of 203p selling to Andrew Atkinson.  The same price per kilo was also achieved by L Graham, Lingmoor Rise whose 36kg lambs were bought by Michael Lomax. The day’s trading left a very tidy overall averaged of 181.02p/kg.  

A larger show of cast sheep were also forward with a lot of plainer ewes on offer resulting in a slightly easier trade on the week.  However, well fleshed sheep were still selling to some great prices with Continental bred ewes still regularly £95-£105 a head and Mule Ewes £85-£95.  Well fleshed Horned ewes were £60-£70 with leaner sorts easier on the week.
