Prime Lambs

Again, another large show of some 2,850 prime lambs and cast sheep were put before a full compliment of buyers, who were looking to purchase all classes and weights of lambs. However, lambs were just a shade easier on the week, but were still being a very satisfactory trade and some 14p/kg dearer than on the corresponding week last year.

Lambs topped at £94/head for a pen of Texel x lambs from Messrs L A & M Lambert of Lupton and a top price per kg of 213p/kg for a pen of smart Texel lambs from Mr P Cummings of Holme.

Cast Sheep

These topped at £90/head for Charollais x ewes from K R & C A Williamson of Barbon and also for Texel x ewes from TE, JS & SA Carruthers of Underbarrow with Mule ewes to £65
