Store Lambs
The weekly sale of store lambs saw a two tier trade with buyers showing a certain level of caution due to the on-going uncertainty and fluctuations in the prime sheep market.

Best pens of shorter keep continental lambs £52 - £55 topping at £56 from CC & HM Robert. Medium keep lambs sold to keenest interest in the mid to late £40’s with smallest sorts hardest to sell. Mules sold to £49 from M Gibson.

Hill lambs now forward in greater numbers with healthy pens keenly competed for by returning seasonal buyers. Today saw SBF achieve £46.50, Cheviots £45 with Rough Fells and Herdwicks both selling to £37 and Swaledales £36.50.

Vendors are reminded to mark tup lambs to be sold separately. Tup lambs sold to £48 with an entry of predominantly smaller pure hill lambs forward.

Please advise the office of entries to assist with contacting buyers.
