NUMBERS HOLD DESPITE FALLING TRADE

NWA Kendal had a busy day with more Prime Sheep than expected.  A total of 1814 head were forward.  As expected the lamb trade was steady to average a shade under 160p/kg.  Messrs Sutton, Crosscrake had the pick of the trade, selling lambs to a top of 185p/kg (£74) for quality Texel lambs purchased by Jim Hadwin, butcher of Mansergh.  Lambs also sold to £75 for Texels from A Cottam, Yew Tree purchased by A Ditta of Accrington. 

A larger entry of cast ewes continue to sell in a competitive ring.  Trade was good with a top price of £92 going to Mark Coates of Ulpha.  

An improved entry of beef calves included more continental calves.  B Wilson, Spout House sold Limousin bullocks and heifer calves to £280 each.  

The monthly sale of store and breeding pigs met a steady trade as befitting a late summer sale.  The sale attracted buyers and sellers from throughout the country and beyond.
