STORE LAMBS & BREEDING SHEEP - WEDNESDAY 25TH JULY 2018

Fortnightly Catalogue Sale of Store Lambs & Breeding Sheep Forward: 4,818 Head, Overall av £55.16 A much larger show of store lambs as the grazing situation brings more lambs onto the market to sell. Stronger lambs were a nice trade with feeders relatively keen as the prime sheep trade holds firm, suffolks especially finding a ready market. However a medium to long keep lamb was certainly more buyable with grass at a premium on most farms and making this class of lamb harder to place.
