CCM Auctions conducted their fourth fortnightly sale of Gimmer Lambs at Skipton on Tuesday where a very nice entry followed the trend of the autumn and saw prices taking a very nice rise in price on the year.
Mules sold to a top of £120 from JK Wilson of Blubberhouses, whilst most of the better lambs on the day sold in the £90s, and most of the rest selling at £80 to £86, just a few pens of the smallest end in the £70’s, with a breed average of £82.79 for Mules (+£22.40 on 2019). A handful of Masham Lambs topped at £88 and levelled at £86.09, a figured equalled by Continental Gimmers, which topped at £104 from RKR Wood of Stokesley.
