First of all a big thank you to all vendors who responded to the call to bring sheep to market today, they were rewarded with a lamb trade that was dearer on the week, with lightweight Horned lambs being especially good to sell. The cast ewe trade was especially hot, with 596 head averaging a staggering £98 each.
Hill lambs sold well all day, best lambs were a straight trade, with not many of the out and out specials to set this section alight, but still several pens topping £100. Handy weighted lambs however were a sharp trade, and would get dearer as the sale wore on. Heavy lambs were either side of £90, whilst some topped £100.
PLEASE NOTE: Normal Primestock Market next week. Sheep will again be required in usual numbers, so please just sell away normally. If you want any advice or indication of trade then speak to Ted next weekend on 07855 958211
