Fortnightly Catalogue Sale of Store Lambs. Forward: 8,188 Head, Overall av £58.30

 

 

A cracking sale of Store Sheep at CCM Skipton today with 8,188 head presented and sold to a total clearance. Short keep lowland lambs were keenly contested all sale long, with Suffolk and Continental crosses from mid £60’s to early £70’s, the better smart but smaller Beltex sorts from £70 to £80. Medium keep lambs were generally in the early 60’s, or down into the late 50’s. Long keep lambs in the 50’s. Nearly 6000 Suffolk and Continental lambs in the entry levelled at £60.19. A few pens of drawn Gimmer lambs getting into the mix, Chris Ryder presenting 3 wonderful pens at £107 £106 & £100. The next sale is the main day for Suffolk and Continental drawn gimmer lambs and potential buyers will have a super choice of 1500 to 2000 Gimmer Lambs of all sizes.

A great show of 2,228 Mule Wether lambs forward today seeing the best sorts from £58 to £65, medium lambs £54 to £57, smaller long keep types £48-£52. The Mule Wethers averaged £54.61
