MARKET REPORT - MONDAY 21st APRIL 2014 E&L

Breeding Sheep (525 Outfits) The largest show of Ewes with lambs at foot seen for a regular weekly sale at Skipton Mart were forward today and all classes sold away quite nicely. There was something for all tastes with several runs of young Mule and Continental Ewes that again caught the eyes of those purchasers looking to buy sheep to run in flocks. The older sheep represented a slightly better selection than of late with some decent strong lambs on straight ewes for feeder/finishers to run at grass until the summer.
