North West Auctions held their weekly sale of Prime Sheep & Sheep with Lambs at Foot at J36 Rural Auction Centre on Tuesday 27th May.

A large show of 700 Prime lambs were put before a full ringside of buyers who were keen to secure all weights and classes of lambs. Lambs topped at £119 per head for a Texel from Messrs Robinson & Fell of Millom and the top price per kilo was 277.5p/kg for a pen of Texel x lambs from RW Nicholson of Lupton.

As vendors come to the end of their hoggs, a very mixed show were forward in this section, but all classes still sold to a very strong trade to average 213.18p/kg with an overall SQQ of 204.83p/kg, topping at £112 per head for Texel x hoggs from Mr CB Hoggarth of Lowgill.

Cast sheep once again remain a firm trade topping at £120 per head for a Texel ewe from Andrew Crowe of Witherslack closely followed at £118 for Suffolk x ewes from J & BL Ellis of New Hutton. Mule ewes sold to £83 but buyers cautious of over fat ewes. Horned sheep sold to £77 for Rough Fell ewes from GM Sedgwick & Son of Sedbergh.

Sheep with Lambs at Foot to £222 (£110/life)
Another pleasing entry of breeding sheep saw a full ringside of buyers compete with several leaving empty handed. Ewes with twins sold to £222 from R & RM Dent with Texel hoggs with singles from R & E Holmes at £220. Mule hoggs from the same home sold to £202 with most generally £170 / £190.
