Prime Lambs

Much larger shows of lambs up and down the country meant lambs were slightly easier trade than that of the previous days. However all weights of lambs were needed to fill buyers orders with light lambs looking a particularly good trade averaging 202.6p/kg. Medium weights topped at 216p/kg for a pen of Charollais x lambs from Nick Buckley of Ings. A tremendous run of 42kg Charollais x lambs from WS Burrow & Son, Silverdale averaged £87.42 per head. Heavy lambs also saw a good trade topping at £90 a head for a big pen of Texel x from DE & SM Moorhouse, Natland.

Cast Sheep
Once again trade holding firm for cast sheep with a very similar average to last week considering there were a lot more leaner type ewes forward. Ewes topped at £96 for a pen of Suffolk x from M Crowe & Son, Witherslack and rams sold to £128 for a Texel from T Beatty of Troutbeck. Not far behind that was a huge Rough Fell ram from JR Metcalfe, Cotegill which sold for £120 to Andrew Atkinson.
