Caption: "The Bonny Lads" 1st Prize Pen from J&J Burrow, Grayrigg

Kendal primestock 23/10/12

A show comprising 8 pens of bonny mule wether lambs were presented before the judge Mr Shaun Cowin of Dunbia, Preston. The first prize ticket was awarded to a pen of 46kg lambs from M/s J&J Burrow of Grayrigg which later went on to sell for £70 to Lancashire Direct Halal Meats.

Second prize went to M/s Fishwick of Longsleddle for a pen of 45kg lambs who were purchased by Dunbia, Preston for £68. M/s Burrow of Grayrigg also took third prize with their second pen of lambs that weighed in at 42kg and made £66.50 selling to Lancashire Direct Halal Meats.

Some 2,365 sheep were sold to an increased number of buyers ringside. Despite prices not rising as we had hoped due to the Muslim festival approaching, the sale averaged a very respectable 154p/kg which is well in line with other markets.

Lambs topped at £92/head for a pen of Texel X lambs from P Whitton, Windermere. M/s J Allonby & Son of Grayrigg sold a smart pen of Texel X lambs to a top price of 186p/kg.

The cast sheep trade saw little variation on the week other than a fewer number of leaner horned ewes forward than previous weeks. A satisfactory trade for all ewes sold was achieved due to 7 ringside buyers, each with several outlets to supply.
