J36 Crooklands Livestock Auction: Store Lambs Thursday 16th November

The fortnightly sale of Store Lambs had another strong entry of 2608 forward selling, once again, to a competitive trade at J36. A good backing of local and buyers from further field ensured a competitive trade for all specification of lambs.

Strong, short term lambs were regularly selling in the sixties, topping at £69.50 for Hampshires from MA Grant of Sedbergh. This was closely followed by £68.50 for Texel lambs from WDM Rigg of Staveley and Beltex lambs to £68 from S Procter of Selside. Plenty more short keep lambs could have been sold to the advantage of the vendor. Medium keep Continental Suffolk Lambs sold to the mid to late fifties. Mule lambs saw best lambs top at £64 from Caley & Mitchinson of Windermere, with the majority of medium keep Mule lambs selling in the mid-fifties.

There was more interest today in horned lambs, with Rough Fells selling to £39, twice, and Swaledale lambs sold to £35.50, strong horned lambs were often selling in the mid-thirties.

Vendors are strongly advised to group up lambs as much as possible and the trade shown today proves it is an advantage to the vendor. Vendors are also requested not to try and mix in stiff legged, lean/poor lambs.

The next sale of Store Lambs will be on Thursday 30th November, please phone the office with entries by Wednesday 22nd November to assist with informing buyers.
