Lancaster Primestock

Spring Lambs

A strong trade at Lancaster with lambs averaging 155ppk. Mules and Continental lambs, between 44kg and 50kg, were the best too sell. A large proportion of upland bred lambs in the market today were eagerly bid for with many saying mules sold to the best trade on the day. Vendors with non-farm assured lambs are strongly advised to become farm assured to gain full financial potential. Non-farm assured lambs were strongly penalized.

Cast Sheep

Trade for cast sheep was somewhat sticky this morning, as a result of a poorer show of sheep and two buyers unfortunately missing. Topping trade was a single Texel ewe realising £90 with other Texels to £68 with Mule ewes to £57.

Prime Beef

A couple of bulls forward today both being Montbelliardes sold to 161.5ppk and 159.5ppk. A larger entry of beef forward next week for the Christmas show and sale of beef.
