,000-plus Skipton store lambs achieve total clearance
Total clearance was achieved for the huge and much increased entry on the year of 8,188 store lambs on offer at Skipton Auction Mart’s latest fortnightly Wednesday sale. They sold to an overall average of £58.30 per head, an increase of £3 -£4 each on the 6,357 lambs sold last year. (2019 - Wed, Aug 21)
Short keep lowland lambs were keenly contested all sale long, with Suffolk and Continental crosses making from the mid £60s to early £70s, with the better smart, but smaller Beltex sorts selling from £70 to £80.
