A large show of almost 2,200 prime sheep were presented to an increased ringside of buyers and all classes of hoggs met a wonderful trade especially considering half the entry was made up of hill breed hoggs with only grass fed hoggs being a shade easier on the week. The best Continental hoggs regularly well over £2 per kilo topping at 221.6p/kg for Texel x hoggs from R & A Easterby of Westhouse and a top price per head of £91 for Texel x hoggs from Mr P Cummings of Holme. Hill bred hoggs also met a strong demand with buyers looking to purchase well finished hoggs.

A large show of 680 cast sheep were presented to a full ringside of buyers who were keen to secure all classes of sheep. Ewes topped at £100 per head for Texels from Mr RG Blackburn of Great Strickland and cast rams sold to £96 from Mr M Barker of Halton. The sale was made up of predominantly plainer Mule and Hill breed ewes which were a shade easier on the week.
