J36 Crooklands Livestock Auction: Primestock - Tuesday 17th September

Prime Lambs

The weekly sale of Prime Lambs had an entry of just over 1000 forward selling to a market average of 157p/kg. There was a very mixed entry of lambs forward with well-fleshed lambs in strong demand and leaner types very hard to place this week and possibly worth more through the store ring. Heavyweight well-fleshed lambs continue to be in demand and sold well at J36 selling to a top of £88 from R & J Dodgson, Natland closely followed by other Suffolk lambs to £86.50 from DE & SM Moorhouse, Natland and £86 from M Rendell, Milnthorpe. Texel lambs sold to a top of £86.50 from AW & AM Clarke, Windermere. Other Texel lambs sold to £84 from DE & SM Moorhouse, who sold heavyweight Mules to £80. Hill lambs sold to a top of £76 from R Saunders, Ulverston for Cheviots with 46kg Mules selling to £73.50 from AW & AM Clarke, with Mashams to the same price from BD Gill, Ingleton.

Cast Sheep

There was an entry of over 500 cast sheep forward, which saw a large quantity of lean and hill ewes in the market.
