Posted Tuesday, 26 May 2015, 4.03pm

North West Auctions held their weekly sale of Primestock at J36, where an entry of 680 New Season Lambs, 189 Prime Hoggs and 191 Cast Sheep were forward.

Prime Lambs
As more firms make the switch over from hoggs over to lambs, a good show of Spring Lambs was put to an increased ringside of buyers. Despite the trade not being as we would like to see it, lambs were competitively bid for and averaged 174.61p/kg. Topping at 202p/kg for a pen of Texels from G H Bell of Kirkby Lonsdale and a top price of £87.50 from K E Richards & Son of Howgill

Prime Hoggs
Prime Hoggs sold to £82.50 from M Barker of Halton. Good well-finished hoggs still selling to a good trade, whilst lean hoggs were harder to place.

Cast sheep
All classes of Cast Sheep, once again, maintained a very strong trade but buyers are very cautious over-fat sheep. Topping today at £160 for a Beltex Cast Ram from T L & S Cross of Westhouse. Messrs Cross’ consignment of sheep averaged a fantastic £135.

Sheep with lambs at foot
The weekly sale of Breeding Sheep saw 464 forward and all selling to full value.
Younger sheep sold to £192 for Mule Hoggs with singles. Others regularly £170-£190. 2 crop Mules sold to £172 with twins and Texel x with twins £188, singles £145.

Hill ewes sold to £102 for Swales with twins, £85 Herdwicks with twins, £65 Herdwicks with singles.
Sale held every Tuesday at 11.30 am.
