734 Breeding Sheep (comprising 269 Sheep with 465 lambs at foot)
A much larger entry sold away to a better trade this week with a good crowd of buyers assembled looking for sheep. Two pens shared the top price of £265 per outfit, the first were Texel cross Shearlings with Twins from David White at Hebden, and this was equalled by Rosie Dunn from York who consigned a pen of 2&3 crop Texels with strong lambs. General trade was £2 to £5 per life better on the week, but there was a smaller proportion of those outfits with young lambs as vendors look to bring strength.
WEEKLY SALE OF SHEEP WITH LAMBS @ FOOT EVERY MONDAY AT 12noon.
NEXT WEEK (MONDAY 18th APRIL) TOTAL ENTRY OF 350 OUTFITS ANTICIPATED.
PLEASE ADVISE ENTRIES TO THE MART OFFICE BY LUNCHTIME ON THE FRIDAY PRIOR TO SALE FOR INCLUSION IN THE ONLINE CATALOGUE
