A larger show of almost 2000 prime sheep were put before a ringside of buyers and despite not reaching the previous day’s trade as hoped, the majority hoggs met a satisfactory trade topping at 190p/kg.

The cast sheep sale saw best Continental ewes were good to sell and fell short of buyers requirements but plainer lean ewes and horned sheep were much harder to sell.
