Posted Tuesday, 21 January 2014, 5.29pm


A smaller show of 1647 Prime Hoggs and Cast Sheep were put before a ringside of 15 active buyers, who were all keen to secure sheep for orders. Trade showed an increase of 9p/kg up on the week to leave an overall average of 183.17p/kg, with best hoggs regularly 215-225p/kg, topping at 227.8p/kg for a pen of Beltex x hoggs from R F Morphet of Halton. A top price of £94/head for a pen of Texel hoggs from John Bargh of Morecambe.

Once again, hoggs 38-42 kg were the easiest to sell but all classes saw a significant rise on the week.

Cast Sheep

These topped at £112/head for a Texel ewe from B & D Willison & Son of Levens. Once again, well fed sheep were good to sell, whilst buyers are very cautious of over fat sheep.
