Prime Lambs

Once again a full ringside of buyers ensured that all classes met a very pleasing trade as new season lambs show a slight drop in price this week, falling in line with the national trend, with buyers being more selective with well finished lambs commending the premium price. Lambs topped at £110 a head for Texel X lambs from S & B Capstick of Old Hutton and a top price of 264.9p/kg for Texel X lambs from Mr G Bell of Kirkby Lonsdale. Once again it was good to see several new faces selling lambs at J36.

Prime Hoggs

As the hogg season draws to a close, it was plain to see a lot of vendors were on their last draws of the season. However all classes were good to sell, with well fleshed hoggs still in excess of £2 per kg topping at 213p/kg and a top price of £94 per head was seen on several occasions.

Cast Sheep

These saw very little change on the week, topping at £116 for Texel X Ewes from K Armer of Kendal. Suffolk X Ewes to £112 from M S Ellwood of Kirkby-in-Furness. Mule Ewes to £78 and Horned ewes to £58.

Breeding Sheep
An entry of over 200 sheep with lambs at foot sold to a competitive trade from a ringside of keen buyers, twelve successful today with several leaving empty handed. Younger sheep reached £165 for Mule Hoggs with Suffolk lambs from JC Hodgson with other £162 from R & E Holmes. Continental hogs reached £150 again from R & E Holmes. Older sheep peaked at £158 for Texel x ewes with twins from K & R Buckle, others £155, £152 from W & W Paterson.

Next week’s sale to include 25 Cheviot ewes with Texel / Beltex lambs.
