Weekly Sale of Geld Gimmer Hoggs & Hoggs, Shlgs & Ewes with Lambs at Foot.
Forward: 837 Breeding Sheep.
Another decent entry of breeding sheep for our weekly sale and a nice trade generally ensued, despite several customers reporting grass scarce. Some excellent prices for strong Continental and Suffolk cross Hoggs with Nigel Peacock from Thirsk making £220 on 5 occasions, whilst Simon Bennett made £210 twice and £208 with Hogg Singles, and Ellie Crisp made £200 of Texel Hoggs with Singles. Mule Hoggs and lambs were a more variable trade, and not just as sharp as last week to be fair, J Verity & Son from Middlesmoor topped the trade at £200, with the main of them making £150 to £185.
