Kendal Primestock 8th January 2013 Sale Report

‘One of the Best Tuesday Trades’

There were no high expectations for the prime sheep trade at Kendal this Tuesday, so an overall average of 135p/kg was better than expected. Lambs over 40kg averaged almost 140p/kg. Over 1200 sheep were forward for the sale and a top price of 187p/kg was achieved by J Allonby & Son of Greenhead for a pen of Texel hogs, purchased by Robert Skelton, New Hall. Pleasingly there were buyers for all classes of lamb on the day.

Prime ewes were a mixed trade with well meated ewes good to sell topping at £100 with a Suffolk from RA Batty, Redhills. Cast rams topped at £92 for Cheviots from CP Bateman, Croft Foot farm.

Pigs

The opening 2013 January sale of pigs saw a pleasing trade with fresh faces making purchases. £110 was the days top price from M Allen, with best meated pigs generally £80-£100. Weaners sold to £25 for Saddleback X from T Barron. Next months sale is Tuesday 12th February.
