A tough trade was had with prime the only specification of pigs in demand selling to a strong trade as regularly seen at J36. Prime pigs sold to a top of £110 each for a pen of 11 white pigs from O’Rourke Farms of Dalbeattie with a pen of store pigs from the same good home selling to £60 each with a pen of 7.
