CCM Auctions held their second fortnightly sale of Store Sheep at Skipton on Wednesday where trade was seen to be very similar for most types to those prices seen at the opening sale, a few pens of best smart lambs would be dearer, strong first cross lambs made late 60’s to £70 with the best at £73 from Michael Mckenzie. The 400 Mule Wether Lambs in the entry were keenly contested and would be dearer too, medium keep lambs would be very similar.
The opening Sale of Breeding Sheep saw keen bidding too, Mule Shearlings to £138, and 3 crop correct Texel Ewes to £120, several other pens of stronger 3/4crop ewes £105-£115. Next Sale in 2 weeks time.
