PRIME SHEEP (2,739 Head)

A slightly increased show of sheep this week sold very well for the time of year. The smart end of lambs were 250p-270p, whilst good prime lambs 38kg-43kg were 230p to 240p. Commercial types of lambs around 215 to 225p, and lightweights anywhere from 200p to 230p. Plenty of 37kg nice lambs making £80 plus. Heavy lambs sold well 45kg-47kg selling at £98 to £105, 50kg lambs selling at £105 to £115 each.

Cast sheep were good to sell, with fleshed ewes not over fat finding a good following.
