Prime Hoggs
Once again the best quality export type hoggs were very keenly sought after, regularly 210-220pp/kg but fell well short of buyers requirements, topping at 227.9p/kg for a cracking pen of Texel x hoggs from Mr D Clarke of Underbarrow. A top price per head of £120 was achieved for a pure Charollais hogg from Mr J Stott of Crosscrake. The sale was made up predominantly hill breed hoggs, of which well finished hoggs met a strong trade but a lot of plain light weight hoggs were much harder to place.

Cast Sheep
Once again all classes of Cast Sheep met a strong trade with the best cast ewes regularly £100 plus, topping at £108 for a pen of Charollais Ewes from Messrs J A & R Geldard of Low Foulshaw. Mule Ewes were mainly £80-£90 and Horned Ewes to £65 with plenty of £35 to £45 with only the very lean plain ewes less than £20
