4,111 PRIME SHEEP

A nice show of fed sheep were forward for sale today, commercial export lambs were a touch dearer on the week, Texel x Mules 37kg to 40kg mainly around 185p to 192p/kg, plainer sorts around 180p. A decent show of smart lambs saw Fox Farms topping at 292.1p for a pen of 8 Beltex at 38kg at £111 each. Others with lambs at 240p or above on one or more occasions were Jimmy Towler of Grindleton , Frankland Farms of Rathmell, John Eddleston of Great Harwood, Nick Carlisle of Kilnsey, Kevin Marshall of Otley and Adrian Leach of Hebden Bridge. Heavy Lowland lambs were a shade dearer for those that were fleshed but not overfat, buyers definitely shying away from lambs that are too thick. 680 lambs today weighed 45.5kg or more, so falling into the heavy category, but these still levelled at 165.66p, best of these at 219.6p were Texel crosses from Kevin Marshall or £105 from Sarah Eddleston. Mixed in the total entry of 3,781 lambs were 958 Mule Swaledale Dalesbred and other hill bred lambs. The good horned lambs were again in strong demand at around 155p to 160p up to 171.9p for a nice pen of Dalesbreds from Joe & Trevor Stoney, Pateley Bridge. With this high number of hill bred lambs, the overall selling average of 175.7p looks good, and for comparison with Marts that quote the SQQ as their average this stood at 178.51p/kg at Skipton.

Cast Sheep were forward in greater number and attracted a couple of extra buyers. Trade was seen to be £2 to £5 dearer on the week with an average of £47.44.
