Nearly 8000 Store Lambs were forward to a complete clearance and levelled at £72 per head, with trade seen to be very similar to that of last fortnight for what was the next grade of lambs.

Suffolks were good to sell seeing a top of £86 for a pen of 50 from SL&SD Lund, Litton and closely followed at £85.50 for 50 head from RD Metcalfe of Brearton. Suffolks averaged £76.38. Beltex also caught the eye, two pens at £100 each, first from AM&HV Brown, Leyburn, and then from I&M Lancaster of Clitheroe. Beltex averaged £80.48.
A large show of 1700 Mule Wethers topped at £80.50 from Swinbank & Briggs of Malham, breed average of £69.14. Other Mules at £77 for 39 from E&E Metcalfe, £75 for 50 from R Berry, £75 for 70 from WP&B Walker
