Store Hoggs average £83.39

The fortnightly sale of store hoggs had an entry of 666 forward. The weather being totally different to a fortnight ago with glorious sunshine and the prime hogg trade continuing to go from strength to strength, resulted in a sharper trade today. It was noticeable that the smaller long-term keep hoggs were dearer with more buyers present for them. A strong overall market average of £83.39 was achieved.
The sale sold to a top of £129 for Texel’s from G & A Shuttleworth, Hornby. Beltex hoggs peaked at £128 from BJ Bowness, Kendal with others selling to £127 from AE Atkinson and Son, Endmoor. Plenty of strong short keep store hoggs selling in the region of £120. Upland hoggs sold to a top of £112.50 for Cheviots from R Doran, Winmarleigh, Mules selling to £110 from PD Pye, Over Wyresdale, the best mule hoggs selling in excess of the £100 mark.
