Spring Lambs
A very mixed show of prime lambs with vendors who have fed there lambs seeing the benefit especially on a falling trade from last week’s sale. A market average of 180ppk with 39-45kg lambs averaging 183. Export types of lambs still selling around the 200ppk with buyers now becoming more selective on other types of lambs as more come available nationally. It is therefore essential to ensure lambs well finished and also it is to the benefit of vendors to become farm assured. Heavy weight lambs from WN & D Smith of Cocker House sold to £89 or 198ppk with a pen of Texel’s. A few consignments of lambs sold over the 200ppk mark. A run of mule lambs from BD Gill of Yarlsber sold to £76.50.

No prime cattle forward today but cattle required.

A smaller number of cast ewes forward this week then expected with more required to fulfil buyers requirements selling to a strong trade, with vendors leaving pleased. Continental ewes sold into the eighties topping at £88 from E Hartley of Hornby. Mule and Masham ewes either side of the seventy mark depending upon the quality of them. A selection of goats forward with more needed week on to fill buyers requirements sold to a strong trade.
