Prime lambs & Cast Ewes

A smaller number of lambs forward this morning sold in line with other centres at the end of last week. A lot of lambs on the market in the local area over the last week and a lack of export trade caused a drop in trade this morning. Topping today’s sale at 213ppk from D & DW Prickett, Farleton House with 32kg Texels. Top price per head came from Alan Blair with a heavy Suffolk lamb at 54kg realising £84. Overall trade averaged 160ppk. Suffolks sold to 164ppk from WTC Farms. Once again vendors are reminded to draw lambs on finish rather than weight with buyers seeking meaty lambs.

Again a smaller show of ewes in comparision with the last few weeks. Best ewes were well sought after, topping at £90 from TR Prickett, Hutton Roof. Mules sold to £74 from WM Pye, Tarnwater Farm. More well fleshed ewes needed to fill buyers order.

Prime Bulls

Another nice entry of 12 bulls this morning were met by a sharper trade. JS & KM Wilson & Son sold a 600kg Lim Bull to top the trade at 191.5ppk. British Blue bulls sold to 167.5ppk from the same home. Montbelliardes sold to 161.5ppk from GA Haston & Son, Galgate. Friesian bulls sold to a respectable 147.5ppk from JM & AG Swarbrick, Bensons Farm.
