A combination of bad weather and a very steady lamb trade meant a smaller show of lambs than usual were put before a ringside of buyers. Lambs topped at £2 per kg for a pen of smart Beltex cross lambs from J Allonby & Son of Grayrigg selling to Riley Bros of Dunnockshaw and a top price per head of £85 for a pen of Texel cross lambs from P & TL Edmondson of Kirkby in Furness selling to Mr J Hadwin of Kirkby Lonsdale.

Overall the trade was better than anticipated with well finished lambs keenly sought after.

These saw a very similar trade to last week with once again meated ewes in much demand topping at £94 a head for some Texel cross ewes from Mrs A Short of Whinfell.

Good meated mule ewes regularly £70-£74 with plainer feeding ewes £60-£65. Horned ewes topping at £80 for a pen if Swaledale ewes from JW Thwaites of Tebay.
