Prime Lambs
Even with a full ringside of buyers the lack of export trade at the moment is certainly having a big effect on the lamb prices. Continental lambs which had plenty of weight and meat were up to. £80 and this was the general trend of the sale with well fleshed or good shaped lambs easier to sell than lambs which were lacking finish due to the appalling weather conditions.

Cast Sheep
A very plain show of ewes were forward to the usual ringside of buyers. As with previous weeks, heavy ewes and those with plenty of flesh were easier to sell but plain leaner types more difficult to place.
