MARKET REPORT - WEDNESDAY 11th FEBRUARY - STORE & BREEDING SHEEP

Fortnightly Sale of Store Lambs and Inlamb Ewes. Forward: 1,065 Head - Comp 730 Store Lambs (av £60.55), 334 Inlamb Ewes (av £120.31). Numbers of store lambs were still good for the time of year and a sharp trade as well with probably a better selection of lowland lambs than at the previous sale and with a lower percentage of Horned lambs this helped to push the overall average above £60. A nice entry of in lamb breeding ewes were mainly made up of a dispersal held on behalf of FE Coy & Son of Rotherham. These sheep were in fine fettle and created a great amount of interest locally and from further afield.
