2,856 Prime Sheep


Numbers are now on the sharp increase nationwide, with an extra 900 lambs penned for sale today and trade inevitably less on the week. The main draw of lambs weighing 36kg to 45kg averaging 210p, and heavy lambs were short of requirements helping these to an average of just over £100 per head. Lightweights however were a more varied selection, and ethnic orders were quieter with Ramadan having started making these harder to sell.

A large show of ewes attracted the usual compliment of buyers and trade was similar on the week.
