An overall average of 168.39p/kg being achieved for just short of 1400 lambs forward, very much in line with the current trade regionally.

Cast Ewes

The weekly sale of cast ewes had a similar number of just shy of 600 cast sheep forward. There was a tougher trade today with the majority been plain to lean ewes and a shortage of heavy fit ewes in the market. Top price of the day coming for J&E Nuttall of Low Bendrigg Farm for a pen of Texel x Ewes selling for £100. The majority of Mule ewes forward recently weaned and proving hard to sell, topping at £64 for several pens forward.
