Lancaster Livestock Auction: Primestock Monday 6th November

Prime Lambs

There was a disappointing number of sheep in the market today but there was certainly no disappointment with the trade as all vendor went away pleased. Well meated lambs were very good to sell with lightweight store type lambs better off being sold in the store lamb ring.

An overall market average of 171.9p/kg was achieved with lambs weighing between 39-45kg averaging 178p/kg. The trade topped at £92.50 or 206p/kg from JK & BE Townley of Mearsbeck for Texel lambs. A consignment of Texel lambs from Peter Robinson of Claughton on Brock sold to £89.50 and £85.50 or 199p/kg. A smaller entry of mules forward this week sold to a continued strong trade with 44kg mules from S Park of Highfield Farm.

More lambs required to meet demand from the busy ring of active buyers for more information please contact Ian Atkinson 07766521472

Cast Sheep

There was more cast ewes in the market today consisting of mainly lean hill ewes. The large number of ewes on the market at the moment is making leaner hill ewes harder to place and with the wet and trashy weather less people in the market looking for feeding ewes to feed this time.
