North West Auctions held their weekly sale of Primestock at J36 on Tuesday with a show of 1,825 Prime Hoggs and 420 Cast Sheep, which were put before a full ringside of buyers.
Prime Hoggs
Not quite as many quality hoggs forward today, however, buyers were keen to secure well-fed finished sheep. A top price of £101 was secured for a single Texel hogg from Richard Blackburn of Great Strickland, and a top price per kg of 221.2p for hoggs from J & J A Coates & Son of Westhouse.
All classes of hoggs were good to sell but buyers are showing a little more caution to under-finished hoggs.
Cast Sheep
These topped today at £134 per head for a pair of Charollais from John Stott of Crosscrake. There were a lot more horned sheep on the market today, but these also met strong demand. Good continental ewes were £120-£130. Mule ewes were £85-£95, with leaner sorts £70-£75.. Horned ewes to £88 for Rough Fell ewes and £70 for Swaledale ewes.
