Lancaster Livestock Auction: Primestock - Monday 24th September

Prime Lambs

The weekly sale of prime lambs had a smaller entry this week following on from a tough trade the previous week, but more buyers present this morning ensured a sharper trade with a final average of 165p/kg. The trade topped today at £90 for Texel Lambs from M Joel, Dolphinholme with others to £86 from E Hartley, Hornby. It was great to have numerous pens selling in the early eighties. Suffolk lambs twice topped at £80 from HJ & BE Kelsall, Gressingham and JA & VA Lamb, Conder Green. Lambs sold to a top of 189p/kg for Texels from M Joel, with many pens of smart conformation lambs selling 180p/kg or more.

Cast Sheep

The cast ewe trade remains very similar, topping twice at £75 for Texel Ewes from JA & VM Lamb, Conder Green with Mule Ewes selling to the £60 mark.
