A show of almost 2000 sheep were put before a ringside of 13 active buyers who were all keen to secure sheep for orders. Lams topped at £94 per head for a big pen of Suffolk x lambs from AM Jennings & Son, Must Hill. The top price per kilo of £2.07 was paid for a smart pen of Texel x Beltex lambs from JG & PH Thompson, Poppy Farm.

Cast sheep were forward in larger numbers than of late and there were a lot freshly spained horned sheep about which were not just as good to sell as they have been as they have been better fleshed. Mule ewes £75-£80. Continentals topped at £105 for a Ram from B & D Willison & Son, Levens.
