STORE LAMBS - WEDNESDAY 18TH OCTOBER 2017

Fortnightly Catalogue Sale of Store Lambs & Breeding Sheep Forward: 8,077 Head, Overall av £50.57 A more mixed show for quality at this weeks’ sale. Strong and smart lowland lambs were a decent trade most of the day, strongest best sorts into the late 60’s and mid 70’s, the 4th and 3rd last pens in the ring making £71.50 and £70.50, with more early to mid 60’s, whilst the strongest end of medium keep lambs were late 50’s towards £60. However there was then a drop to longer keep and more commercial types of lamb. Mule wethers were showing the time of year more than usual, better end over £50, longer keep types mid to late 40’s.
