Lancaster Livestock Auction: Lancaster Prime Lambs & Cast Sheep - Monday 28th December 2020

Monday 28th December 2020

Prime Lambs

The only disappointment this morning was the lack of prime lambs forward. An overall market average of 216p/kg included many consignments of hill bred lambs. Handy lambs continue to be the best to sell with good consignments of handy continental lambs often averaging between 220p/kg and 230p/kg.
The consignment from Andrew Butler, Hambleton topped the market selling to £110 or 250p/kg for a Beltex lamb, Texel’s from the same home selling to £105 twice. Top pence per kilo was achieved by TR Prickett, Hutton Roof, selling Texel lambs to 267p/kg or £104 and also selling others to 253p/kg or £101.
Plenty of lambs sold in excess of the £100 mark; GM & A Jackson, Little Eccleston selling continental lambs to £106 and £105 twice. The consignment from Bargh Contractors sold to £105 and Beltex lambs from John Bargh selling to £104.
Hill lambs sold to £102, £101 and £100 for Cheviot lambs from GM & A Jackson, Little Eccleston. Masham lambs sold to £90.50 weighing 42kg from DC Miller, Claughton on Brock with mules selling to £90.50 weighing 43kg from M & L Preece, Kirkby Lonsdale. Swaledale lambs sold to £80 from T Ayrton and Son, Over Wyresdale.

Cast Sheep

Cast sheep trade really does remain buoyant, more could have been easily sold. Leading the way was Beltex ewes from ST Birkett, Carnforth selling to £130 followed by Texel’s to £116 from Andrew Butler. Horned sheep sold to a top of £78 for Jacobs from ST Birkett, Carnforth, Dalesbred’s to £71 from R Capstick and Son, Ingleton and Swaledales to £70 from S Bosworth, Burnley.
