J36 Tuesday 24/03/15

Posted Tuesday, 24 March 2015, 11.01am

North West Auctions held their weekly sale of prime sheep at J36 on Tuesday where an entry of 1250 prime hoggs and cast sheep were sold.
A lot more hoggs have hit the markets nationally and trade would be a little easier on the week especially for the heavy weight hoggs and there was a large proportion in that category forward today. Hoggs topped at £96 per head for Suffolks from Mr G Riley of Bolton-le-Sands and a top price per kilo of 204p/kg for a pen of Cheviot hoggs from JC Dunning of Orton which were purchased by Riley Bros., of Dunnockshaw.
Considering there was a very mixed show of hoggs and a lot of heavy hoggs forward we still achieved an average of 185.72p/kg.
Cast Sheep
All classes of sheep met a fantastic trade with ewes topping £138 on several occasions and a top price on the day of £148 for a Texel ram from D & J & A Freeman of Troutbeck. Mule ewes peaked at £118 for a pen full from TL & S Cross of Westhouse and Horned sheep sold to £96 for Rough Fell ewes from Birkhaw Farm, Howgill.
