Spring Lambs

A small entry of prime lambs forward at Lancaster this morning with many factors against Lancaster today. The dreadful weather putting many off venturing against to sort sheep and many been busy buying in replacement breeding sheep over the last week. A market average of 186ppk with lambs weighing between 39 and 45kg best to sell once again averaging 187ppk. A strong trade in which more could be sold with some buyers unable to even get started. Heavy weight lambs sold to a top of £96 from GA Haston & Son of Lane House. Plenty of better types of lambs selling towards 200ppk. Mule lambs sold to £76 from RH & C Ayrton of Ouzelthorn, more lambs required to keep a busy ring of buyers satisfied.
