STORE LAMBS - WEDNESDAY 29TH NOVEMBER 2017

Fortnightly Catalogue Sale of Store Lambs & Breeding Sheep Forward: 5,056 Head, (Overall av £51.75) CCM Auctions had a large entry of store sheep for the time of year, when over 5,000 were penned and sold at the fortnightly sale on Wednesday. Strong lambs were in sharp demand with several pens of smart goods making into the 80’s to a top of £86 from RJ Bailey of Reeth, with a list of Suffolk and Continentals making mid 60’s or more. Strong end Mules were in the 60’s, topping at £67.50 from Martin and Vicky Parsons of Giggleswick.



Cheviot type and continentals from a hill bred ewe were forward in large numbers, and plenty of customers looking for fresh, bright lambs for wintering and a nice trade was witnessed for these, and the same could be same of Horned lambs, those smaller but nice sparky sorts in the mid 30’s and stronger sorts into the 40’s.
