With farmers taking advantage of the dry frosty conditions, a smaller show of hoggs were presented to a ringside of some 12 buyers. Once again handy weight export hoggs (38-40kg) were the best to sell with top prices of 229p/kg for a pen of 42kg Texel x hoggs from Fishwick Farms, Silverdale and a top price per head went to a Suffolk x hogg from F I & M E Little, Barrows Green selling for £99 to A Dawson of Sedbergh. Mule and horned hoggs sold to a very similar trade as the previous week with well fleshed horned hoggs, 180-190p/kg and mule hoggs 180-185p/kg.

A smaller show of cast sheep were presented to the usual ringside of buyers and, once again, a very firm trade was seen for all classes of sheep with horned ewes being particularly sought after. Overall average £73.04.
