Lancaster Monday 17th October

Posted Monday, 17 October 2016, 5.06pm

North West Auctions Lancaster had on offer 620 Prime Sheep and 172 Cast Sheep at the weekly sale.

Prime Lambs had a similar entry to last week with many vendors sitting tight with Lambs in hope of a price increase. All buyers were in attendance and were looking for Lambs but only at a price. Topping the sale today was a pen of 56kg Texels, consigned by J Bargh & Son, North Farm, Heaton and realising £86. Heavy weight Lambs were harder to sell on the previous week as more become available on the market. Top price per kilo for lambs was 186p for a pair of 39kg Texels consigned by Ian T Richardson, Beech Grove House, Preston.

Light and handy weight lambs were selling at a similar trade today, 170-180p for well bred, meaty types, and were keenly bid for. Strong lambs, with a good cover were realising £80-£85. 620 Prime Lambs averaged 159p/kg.

Once again, a strong number of cast Ewes forward for Lancaster with over 170 going under the gavel. Top price per head was a pen of Texels consigned by Bargh Contractors, Old Woodhouse, and realising £89. Continentals were selling to £69, consigned by J Burr, Little Fell. Tups sold to a top of £97 for a pair of Texels consigned by G A Haston & Son, Lane House, Galgate.
