As hogg numbers start to tighten up around the area the best quality hoggs fall short of buyers requirements as once again a large proportion of the hoggs were hill bred types. Trade peaked at £110 per head & 250p/kg for a pair of smart Texel x hoggs from FI & ME Little, Helm Croft. Texels selling 210-220p/kg with plainer hill breeds 180-190p/kg. Once again light weights were much sought after regularly round the £2 per kilo mark. A pleasing overall sale average of 203.52p/kg was achieved.

Cast sheep once again continue to maintain the high rates with ewes topping at £127 per head from R & J Dodgson, Cracalt. Texel rams topped at £124 from R & E Ladds, Benson Hall. Mule ewes regularly sold for £95-£100 but buyers were certainly very cautious of over fat ewes. Leaner horned ewes also continue to look great with the very plain sorts £40-£50 and the better types £65-£70.
