5,040 Prime Sheep

Lamb trade was again good today with the average very similar for the 5th week in a row and above 5,000 presented for the 4th week in a row. Heavy lambs and tup lambs were good to sell in the run up to the EID festival in the middle of this week, whilst handy weighted lambs were also a shade dearer with ethnic orders driving this trade.
