A good sale today with an increased entry on offer and some super outfits forward.

A premium price paid for the outfits with Texel/Beltex lambs, even though there was some variation in the quality of ewe. First cross Texel Shlgs with Texel lambs at foot met strong demand with P&AM Simpson, Dacre selling to tops of £315,£308. Mules Shlgs all £220-£240. A few more Hoggs and Lambs forward on the week and they sold away well with Mules and Singles selling at £190-£195 and Texels from W Stapleton at £200 followed by E Crisp at £195. Mule ewes with twins sold well with £185-£208 with a few smaller ewes and younger lambs a touch less. Texel ewes away well with twins at 242 from JT Spencer, Southfield. Many ewes in the price region of £200-£240.
Any ewes with strong single lambs were keenly contested with buyers keen for quick turnaround, outfits with younger singles also a nice trade for anything with a bit of style in the lamb.
Next Week is the Annual Special Bank Holiday Weekend Sale, comprising 600 Geld Gimmer Hoggs and 1,100 Outfits of Hoggs, Shlgs & Ewes with Lambs at Foot.
