A show of 1800 sheep were forward to a full ringside of buyers and following in line with the national trend, lambs were an easier trade but still averaged a very respectable 181.6p/kg. A top price per kilo was 205p/kg for a pen of Texel x lambs from S & B Capstick, Old Hutton. Top price per head of £92 was paid for a pen of lambs from RS Harker & Son, Grayrigg. Lambs which were full of meat were the easiest to sell with lambs lacking flesh harder to place.

Cast sheep met a very competitive trade with plainer type ewes once again looking the dearest on the day. Top price was £104 per head for a big pen of Texel x ewes from E Dodgson of Kendal.  All cast sheep averaged £61.51.
