Fortnightly Catalogue Sale of Store Lambs & Breeding Sheep
Forward: 2126 Head, Overall av £61.52
A great start to the sheep sale season at Skipton on Wednesday when CCM held their opening sale of Store Lambs. The average for the sale was a heartening £61.52, representing a fall of just £1.32 on the year. A good crowd of buyers was present on the day looking for sheep which gives good encouragement for the next sale. It fair to say that lambs were would dbe slightly stronger and in better condition than most would be expecting and this certainly helped the days proceedings. #
At the pre sale show, judge Thomas Walmsley of Haverah Park awarded first prize to AM Leach of Hebden which later sold for £69 each.
