Fortnightly Catalogue Sale of Store Lambs, Feeding Ewes & Breeding Sheep Forward: 5,574 Head, Comprising 4,854 Store Lambs (av £63.18) and 720 Ewes, Rams and Gimmer Lambs. A great sale at CCM Skipton on Wednesday with trade on a high note following the rise in prime lamb trade, and there was a sale average for 4,854 Store Lambs of £63.18 per head. Good lambs for short to medium keep were in high demand, and Mule/Masham Wethers were especially good to sell with strongest end in the £70’s up to £75.50, Mules av £64.58 and Mashams £68.27.

 



The smart Continentals were in the £80’s, an odd pen topping at £92.50 from Townhead Farm Partners, Giggleswick, £89 Frankland Farms Rathmell, and £88 from S&L Robinosn, Barnoldswick. Strong Suffolks and Continentals were keenly contested, and we require a large show of all classes for the next sale with buyers arriving from a wide area. Speak to Jerely, Ted or Kyle for more details.
In the Lingfields Ring, we held our special November Fair for 720 Breeding Sheep of all classes. Rams were in strong demand, with 31 head selling to a virtual clearance.
