A good show for the time of year with a full ringside of buyers competing very strongly for well fleshed hoggs with plenty regularly in excess of 230p/kg and topping at 246.20p/kg.  A cracking run of hoggs from J Hadwin & Son of Mansergh averaging well over the one hundred pounds per head for 46 sold. Heavy hoggs also sold to a strong trade with several buyers looking to purchase big hoggs which topped at £112 per head for Texel x hoggs from J & J Huck of Burneside.

Cast Sheep
Big heavy ewes fell short of buyers requirements and once again maintained the recent high rates with the leaner type sheep being just a shade easier on the week.  Ewes topped at £110 for Suffolk ewes from RA Batty, Kendal closely followed by F & SA Edmondson, Ulverston.

Sale of Sheep with Lambs at Foot
Another strong entry of 421 sheep with lambs sold to a ringside of buyers containing several new faces with the promise of grass and warmer weather.
