Caption: Good trade with 11 buyers in the ring !!

A larger show of some 2000 lambs and cast sheep were put before a full ringside of buyers.

Prime Lambs

A very mixed show of lambs were forward with well-fleshed lambs a little harder to sell. A top price on the day was £97 for a heavy Suffolk x Hampshire lamb from Messrs J & O Galbraith & Son of Endmoor and a top price per kg was 211p/kg for a pen of handy weighted Texel x lambs from Messrs J G & P H Thompson of Selside. Overall all weights of lambs were sought after and although prices were some 7-8p/kg easier than the previous day’s trade, due to larger shows of lambs out up and down the country. Our average fell well in line with that of other markets and ahead of some, leaving a market average of 189.5p/kg, which is some 12p/kg above the same corresponding week last year.

Cast Sheep

Once again a large show of almost 400 cast ewes forward were sold to 8 active buyers. A show made up predominantly leaner horned ewes, which met a fantastic trade. Better continental x and mule ewes were a couple of pound easier on the week but topped at £102 for a big pen of Texel x ewes from Messrs W S Burrow & Sons of Silverdale. A top price was achieved of £120 for a Texel ram from Messrs Coward Bros of Kirkby in Furness.
