STORE LAMBS - WEDNESDAY 25TH JANUARY 2017

Fortnightly Catalogue Sheep Sale: 1,217 Store Lambs & 13 Blue Faced Leicester Females There was a larger entry of lambs this fortnight, but quality was very mixed with lambs generally smaller than the previous sale. Anything with strength and type was well bid for, whilst the long keep lambs were keenly sought with feeder finishers reporting a good supply of winter forage that needs eating. Sales continue fortnightly, please pre-enter stock with the mart office for the catalogue.
