Weekly Sale of Prime Sheep and Monthly Sale of Pigs

Another large entry of 2400 prime lambs and cast sheep were sold to a ringside of buyers which saw prices top at £95 for a Single Texel lamb from James Robinson of Carnforth.  The best export type lambs were regularly 200-215p/kg. Commercial Suffolk & Texel x lambs were 175p/kg – 185p/kg. Mule lambs 165p/kg –170p/kg. A large proportion of the lambs forward were in excess of 46kg and these lambs were easier on the week but still left a very pleasing overall average of 171.86p/kg

An increased ringside of buyers saw all classes of cast sheep sharper on the week. Ewes topped at £90 per head for a pen of Continentals from B & AC Barnes of Kirkby Lonsdale. Mules sold to £69 with plenty £60-£65. A much improved show of Horned sheep ensured these saw the greatest lift on the week.

The monthly sale of pigs attracted a large entry of over 100 pigs with something for everyone. Prime pigs sold to £144 for White gilts from D Metcalfe with others at £122 from Messrs Hey & Sons, Saddlebacks reached £122 per head for a trio from E Lawson. Store pigs sold to a high of £109 from Mr Gawthrop with younger sorts £70 from AJ & ME Saggers. Cast sows topped at £158 from J & M Wilson with boars to £115. In-pig sows reached £138 from Messrs Wilson. Weaners sold to £37 for G.O.S. from D Cornthwaite.
