Weekly Sale of Geld Gimmer Hoggs & Hoggs, Shlgs & Ewes with Lambs at Foot. Forward: 837 Breeding Sheep. Another decent entry of breeding sheep for our weekly sale and a nice trade generally ensued, despite several customers reporting grass scarce. Some excellent prices for strong Continental and Suffolk cross Hoggs with Nigel Peacock from Thirsk making £220 on 5 occasions, whilst Simon Bennett made £210 twice and £208 with Hogg Singles, and Ellie Crisp made £200 of Texel Hoggs with Singles. Mule Hoggs and lambs were a more variable trade, and not just as sharp as last week to be fair, J Verity & Son from Middlesmoor topped the trade at £200, with the main of them making £150 to £185.


Older sheep with lambs found a ready market, several pens of Mule Ewes full mouth or broken mouth with twins around the £170 mark, and older Horned ewes with lambs making to equivalent of £50 per life for b/m twins.
Next week we will revert back to our usual sale day and time of Mondays at 11:30am following the sale of calves. Thankyou.
