Forward: 7,251 Head, Overall av £54.10
The largest show of the season so far saw the first of the drawn Suffolk and Continental gimmer lambs forward for sale. Trade for these was good for the quality sorts, with nice skinned clean headed lambs receiving good attention. Smaller lambs however are best left mixed with the wethers.
The Store Lambs saw Suffolk & Continentals in strong demand. Smaller lambs £50 to £53, medium types £54 to £57 and strong end £58 to £62. Quality smart store lambs (Beltex) £64 to £72.
A very large show of Mule & Masham Wethers (2,198 head) did not maintain the trade of the previous sale, keeping lambs £45 to £50, medium term lambs £50 to £53.
