Prime Lambs & Cast Ewes

As the sun continued to shine and farmers took advantage of the fine weather, a good entry of 1754 sheep were presented to a full ringside of buyers. Lambs averaged a very healthy 181.15p/kg. A top price of £94 per head was paid for a pen of Texel x lambs from M Coates, Ulpha. Top price per kilo of £2.08 went to Fishwick Farms, Silverdale for a pen of Texel x.

Cast ewes once again remain a firm trade topping at £104 for a Texel x ewe from Fishwick Farms, Silverdale. Overall average £59.50.

A Good Pig Trade Considering Increase in Cost of Production

The increase in pig feed meant that the trade for weeners and smaller store pigs was slightly easier than the previous month with the majority of weaners selling between £20 and £25. The best trade of the day was for big well fleshed stores and finished pigs.

Top price of the day came from AJ & ME Saggers, Holme Head selling a couple of good shaped well finished Pietrain x gilts for £122 to PW Clarke, Woodside. Sows topped at £95 from K Singleton to W Taylor & Son, Bamber Bridge. Cast sows & boars sold to their value for the quality that was forward.

The next Sale of pigs will be on Tuesday 11th September 2012.
