Posted Wednesday, 14 January 2015, 11.56am

On Tuesday 13th January North West Auctions held their weekly sale of Primestock at J36 where an entry of 2650 Prime Sheep were put before a full ringside of buyers.
All Hoggs sold, averaging 193.06p/kg, with well finished Hoggs meeting a fantastic trade whilst leaner grass fed Hoggs a little more caution was displayed. Export type Hoggs were regulary 210-220p/kg with a top price of 230p/kg for a pen of Beltex X Hoggs from Richard Prickett of Hutton Roof. Top price per head was £103 for a single Texel x Hogg from Fishwick Farms, Silverdale.
Cast Sheep were, once again, met by a very strong trade topping at £140 for a Suffolk Ewe from Messrs Ellwood of Grizebeck. The best meated Mule ewes were regularly £108-£112 but leaner plainer feeding Ewes would be just a shade easier on the week. Horned Ewes were to £99 for Rough Fell Ewes from BJ Thompson of Selside and Swaledale Ewes to £80.
The monthly sale of pigs saw white prime pigs selling to £92 from R Strong, with others at £88 from AJ & ME Saggers. Store Pigs to £62; Weaners topped at £30 for Pietrain X with most £15-£25.
Next sale will be Tuesday 10th February. Please inform the office of entries prior to the sale to assist staff when contacting buyers.
