Prime Sheep Report
North West Auctions held their weekly sale of primestock at J36 on Tuesday with a larger show of 2,153 prime sheep put before a full compliment of buyers.
Hoggs topped at £111 for a single Texel from WT & EM Townley & Son of Higher Westhouse and a top price per kilo of 235.7p/kg. Well fed hoggs once again met a strong trade regularly 200 – 220p/kg. A much larger entry of Hill bred hoggs forward this week with the best 185 – 195p/kg topping at 196.3p/kg for a cracking pen of Scotch Blackface hoggs from Steve Williamson of Ulverston. Even with half the sale being made up of Hill bred sheep, a very pleasing overall average of 187.2p per kilo was achieved.
A larger show of cast sheep were forward with the best ewes once again maintaining the recent high rates topping at £135 per head for 4 Texels.
