J36 Crooklands - Tuesday 19/11/13

Posted Wednesday, 20 November 2013, 9.20am

A big show of 3100 prime lambs and cast sheep were forward with the best quality lambs being a sharp trade with commercial lambs in general being easier on the week. Lambs topped at £94 per head for a pen of Suffolk x lambs from F & SA Edmondson of Ulverston and a top price per kilo of 215p for a smart pen of Beltex x lambs from ME Wannop & Sons of Morecambe.

Cast Sheep – A big show of cast ewes were forward with a large percentage of the sale being made up of plain hill ewes and these were easier on the week and harder to place. Good well fleshed ewes were once again good to sell and short for requirements.
