Weekly Prime Sheep Sale

Prime Lambs - An increased number of lambs were presented to an increased number of buyers and once again all weights and classes were much sought after. Lambs topped at £116 per head for Charollais from J Stott of Crosscrake and a top price per kilo of 269.2p was achieved by AE Atkinson & Son of Endmoor for Texel x lambs. The best export type lambs met the trade of the day regularly selling for 230 to 240p/kg whilst Suffolk x lambs out of Mules were just a shade easier with vendors taking advantage of the current prices and selling lambs lighter with a lot of lambs 36-39kgs.

Prime Hoggs continue to come forward topping at £76 per head for Texel x hoggs from PW Clarke of Crosthwaite.

Cast Sheep saw very little change on the week with ewes topping at £99 per head for Continental x from GH Bell, Kirkby Lonsdale, TK Robinson & Sons, Old Hutton and JA Chapman, Kendal. Mules topped at £88 per head from JG & PH Thompson, Selside with plenty more £75 to £80. Horned ewes to £58 per head for Swaledales from J & AJ Coates & Son, Westhouse and Rough Fell ewes sold to £70 from J Bryning, Tebay.
