J36 Crooklands Livestock Auction: Primestock Tuesday 31st July

Spring Lambs

The weekly sale of prime lambs had a slightly smaller number forward this week and included the annual ‘Tex-Factor’ show and sale of pens of five Texel sired prime lambs, which was supported by the North West Texel Breeders club. There were 8 pens lambs forward for judge, Mr James Cookson, to cast his expert eye over. He awarded the first prize rosette to RHM & S Boyren, Hill Park, Ulverston with a pen of 44kg lambs selling to £97 or 220p/kg which was purchased by Lancashire Halal Direct. The Boyren family also received £100 voucher. The second prized rosette was awarded to E Dodgson, Spital Farm, Kendal who received £80 voucher selling 49kg to £98 purchased by Lancashire Halal Direct. The vouchers can be redeemed at the NWTBC sale which will take place at J36 on Sunday 12th August 2018 with a catalogue entry of 150 Texels including sheep from renowned blood lines.

The overall market trade averaged at 168p/kg which was in keeping with other markets on the day. Good conformation lambs were still selling around the 200p/kg mark with Beltex lambs from SA Hill of Slyne and EJ Hodgson and Son of Lambrigg all achieving this price. Heavy, well-meated lambs still continue to sell in strongest demand. Plenty of pens of lambs still selling in the mid-eighties. Lean lambs were hard to place and being financially penalised with vendors urged not to draw lean lambs for the prime market.

Cast Sheep

An entry of five hundred cast ewes forward today at J36 saw well-fleshed ewes and big ewes continue to sell and in demand. Lean ewes remain hard to place with a large number on the market at the moment and no buyers for cast feeders at the moment, due to the current shortage of grass.

The trade topped at £118 from a Beltex tup from JA & KJ Allen, Ings. Ewes sold to a top of £109 for Suffolks from F & SA Edmondson, Ulverston with Texels selling to £106 from Helen Newton of Kendal. Plenty of heavy weight ewes sold around the ninety pound mark. Mule Ewes topped at £80 from SW Atkinson & Son, Crook, closely followed by £79 from DJ Casson & Son of Slyne. There was plenty of pens of strong Mule ewes selling in the mid-seventies. Swaledale cast ewes topped at £68 from F & SA Edmondson. The trade for lean ewes was very dependent on the condition of the sheep.
