Opening Sale of Store Lambs

Store Lambs

The opening sale of Store Lambs at J36 saw triple the entry to the same sale last year. A mixed entry of lambs in terms of size and variety with large lambs in strong demand and eagerly bid for with longer term lambs harder to place but people eager to purchase them.

In comparison to last year’s sale vendors who had sheep forward last year and this year, saw their trade up on the year. The trade topped at £84.50 for Suffolk lambs from GJ & CA Penellum of Millom, with shapely Texel lambs selling to £78 and £74.50. Suffolk Mules sold to a top of £72.50 from Tom Beaty of Troutbeck.

Next sale of store lambs to include early breeding sheep will take place on Thursday 27th July. Please advise the office of entries.
