North West Auctions held their weekly sale of prime sheep at J36 on Tuesday where, once again, a large show of 2263 sheep comprising of 1823 prime lambs and 440 cast sheep were sold to a full ringside of buyers.

As other markets have reported, trade was easier today with lambs harder to place but we still managed to stay well in line with overall averages at other centres, and well ahead of some, to average 174.31p/kg.

All classes and weights of lambs sold to a competitive trade with lambs topping at £86 per head for a pair of Beltex x lambs from David Prickett of Farleton.

Another good show of cast sheep were forward with strong ewes once again remaining a sharp trade and being short of buyers requirements, whilst a lot more freshly weaned Horned ewes on offer today were slightly easier on the week, but still looked a good trade.

A smaller show of 79 pigs forward for the monthly sale, with trade for finished pigs being much firmer, attaining a top price of £145 from AJ & ME Saggers, Holme Head, £130 AJJ Horn, Lower Griseburn, £128 Messrs Strong & Preston. White weaners maintained the good prices, selling to £50 AJ & ME Saggers, and £48, S Corbishley. Store pigs to £105 David Miller Farming. Sows selling to a top of £85.
