Prime Lambs
As more firms make the switch from hoggs to lambs all classes and weights were much sought after. Topping at £119 a head for a pen of smart ¾ Texel x lambs from Mrs Anne Airey of New Hutton, £119 per head was also achieved for a pen of Texel x from AE Atkinson & Son, Endmoor All lambs were good to sell and more are needed on a weekly basis to meet the strong demand of a full ringside of buyers.

Prime Hoggs
Once again good quality hoggs still good to sell topping at 216.2p/kg but a lot of plain lean type hoggs around were harder to cash which left an overall market average of 158.33p/kg.

Cast Sheep
All classes of cast sheep met a firmer trade on the week. Over 300 forward topping at £112 for a Continental from W Kipling, Shap.
