Prime Hoggs

An entry of over 400 prime Hoggs at Lancaster sold to a market average of 155p/kg. Prime hoggs sold to a top of £86 from GR & RA Surtees of Rowallen House. Commercial Continental and Texel Hoggs were selling in the region of thirty pound above their weight. Heavy Hoggs were harder to place with many buyers having difficulties selling the larger heavy Hoggs. Light handy weight Hoggs around the 36kg mark were eagerly bid for and were in the strongest demand with a shortage of this type of Hogg available on the market.

Cast Sheep

A sharp cast ewe trade was enjoyed with buyers keen to purchase sheep, a different story to the prime hoggs. All classes of ewes selling a few pounds up than seen over previous weeks. The trade topped at £95 for cast continental tups from J Lamb of Old Glasson.
