4,474 Prime Sheep comprising 3901 Prime Lambs & 573 Cast Ewes & Rams

A large show of sheep were a mixed trade. Best lambs were good to sell, many maintaining last weeks rates, however heavy lambs, commercial types and Mules were less money. An average of 162p or £70.27 per head was a good result on the day as the show was not up to the quality of last week. Ken and Hazel Gamble
