STORE LAMBS - WEDNESDAY 20TH SEPTEMBER 2017

Fortnightly Catalogue Sale of Store Lambs & Gimmer Lambs Forward: 8,189 Head (Overall av £53.65) CCM Auctions held their fortnightly sale of lambs at Skipton on Wednesday where 8,189 head were sold. Buyers were understandably slightly more cautious given the recent fall in prime prices, however strong stores were largely unaffected and just about maintained recent rates. Medium keep and long keep lambs were harder to cash though and as the season has progressed there is more of this class of lamb in the entry too. Buyers though are reporting that they expect winter keep to become available this next few weeks as dairy cows get housed and going forward this should help trade for the longer keep lamb.
