PRIME SHEEP (3,458 HEAD)

The wet weather and Bank holiday did not put off vendors today from consigning stock, and generally they were rewarded for their efforts. Continental lambs of all weights sold to a similar trade to before Christmas with nice export lambs 155p to 170p/kg. Heavy lambs generally 150p to 155p/kg. There was a tremendous trade for the smart end, topping at 240.5p for Beltex crosses from Paul Simpson, and plenty over £2 per kilo. Mule lambs were a touch dearer mainly around £14 to £16 over the weight for 40kg to 44kg lambs, Horned lambs also found a better reception than of late.

Cast ewe trade took a slight lift to record an overall average of £57.49 for just over 500 head presented. Heavy ewes and rams especially good to sell with quite a few pens selling at £130 to a top of £154.50
