Prime Lambs
A lot more meated lambs around this week which reflected in the overall average being up by 3 – 4p/kg on the week. Lambs 44kg upwards were in great demand, averaging 180p/kg, topping at 190p/kg (£93/head) for a pen of Texel x lambs from Mr E Dodgson of Kendal. Handy weight, export type lambs regularly 180 – 185p/kg, £32-£34 over the weight but leaner type lambs were a little harder to sell. Top price per kg was 200p/kg for a pen of Texel x lambs from Messrs J N & D J Bowes of Crook

Cast Sheep
A huge show of 776 cast sheep were forward to an increased ringside of buyers. The sheep forward were predominantly made up of leaner type Swaledale and Mule feeding ewes.

Well fleshed Mule ewes £70-£75 topping at £90, with leaner types £35-£45. Well fleshed horned ewes £58-£65, with leaner types £30-£35 and very lean ewes £22-£28, with, once again, a shortage of good continental ewes which buyers were eager to secure and topping at £114.
