Another good entry of some 1600 prime sheep were put before a ringside of 16 active buyers. A very mixed show of hoggs were presented with a lot more grass-fed hoggs about, but all classes were in great demand. A strong overall market average of 112.08p/kg was achieved. Hoggs topped at £116 per head for a fantastic pen of Beltex x hoggs from Mr G Harryman of Hawkshead.
