Prime Lambs
A smaller entry of prime lambs were sold to an increased ringside of buyers and a much sharper trade than anticipated was achieved with lambs being 8-10p per kilo dearer than that of the previous day’s trading. Once again fed lambs were the easiest to sell with a top price of £86 per head for Texel lambs from SJ & NS Wood, Causeway Farm. The top price per head was 186p per kilo and was made on several lots of smarter type lambs. Mule lambs were also good to sell with plenty £66-£67, £22-£24 over their weight.

Cast Sheep
These were also a firmer trade on the week with horned and hill breed ewes sharper than previous weeks, with Mule & Continental ewes seeing little change.
