Prime Hoggs

A smaller show of predominantly hill breed hoggs were presented to the usual ringside of buyers with a top price of £97.50/head for a pen of Texel x hoggs from J A & J Harper of Killington and these also made the top price per kilo of 232p/kg. Once again the best export type hoggs were regularly 220-230p/kg, with handy weighted Mule and Horned hoggs 190-200p/kg. Heavy hoggs were a little harder to place leaving a very pleasing overall average of 201.12p/kg.

Cast Sheep

Once again a good show of cast sheep were forward and all classes were good to sell. Plainer horned ewes were just a shade easier on the week. Overall average £69.40.
