FIRST SALE OF THE NEW YEAR AT KENDAL
The New Year got off to a good start with some 1500 prime sheep presented to a full ringside of buyers. Export type hoggs met a wonderful trade being regularly 210-220p/kg topping at 228p/kg for a cracking pen of Texel hoggs from Mr M Stephenson, Salterwath Farm and purchased by Michael Lomax. The top price per head of £93 also came from Mr Stephenson and sold to B Riley & Sons. However, much more caution towards Mule & Horned hoggs was obvious especially after last weeks fantastic trade but still sold to a very pleasing trade and leaving a very respectable overall average of 194.75p/kg.

Cast sheep were once again very good to sell and if anything £3-£4 dearer on the week with prices topping at £130 for a Texel ram from JR Metcalfe, Cotegill. Continental ewes regularly £95-£105 and Mule ewes were also £90 plus. Horned ewes also good to sell with lean sorts looking particularly dear. Don’t forget next Tuesday 10th January is the show & sale of Rough Fell Hoggs (pens of 5).
