MARKET REPORT – TUESDAY 10th SEPTEMBER 2013

Great Annual Show & Sale of North of England Mule Ewe Lambs onbehalf of NEMSA Members. Forward: 7,068 head at an overall average of £102.00 per head (-£7.11 down) CCM Auctions conducted the opening show and sale of NEMSA members Mule Gimmer Lambs at Skipton Auction Mart, North Yorkshire on Tuesday. Another increased show of lambs at this major sale sold well on the day to record an overall average of £102.00 per head, just over £7 per head down on the year. Given all the external factors affecting the sheep trade at the moment this looks a fair result all round for both buyers and sellers.
