Posted Wednesday, 17 July 2013, 9.06am

As large number of lambs come forward into markets throughout the country, trade took a bit of a knock today, but still managing to hold above £2 per kg, with a sale average of 201.72p/kg. Some 2,400 prime sheep forward before a full compliment of buyers who were keen to secure well finished lambs, whilst half the show consisted of lambs weighing 32-39kg of which some lacked a little finish.

Lambs topped at £106/head for Suffolk cross lambs from Mrs AM Jennings & Son of Kendal. Top price per kilo reached 241p for a pen of smart Beltex cross Cheviot lambs from Messers J Allonby & Son of Grayrigg.

Once again in the Cast Sheep sale, well fleshed sheep continue to sell well, topping at £114 for Texel cross from Messers G & ID Postlethwaite of Howgill. Leaner ewes were a shade easier on the week.
