STORE LAMBS - WEDNESDAY 6TH OCTOBER 2021

Fortnightly Catalogue Sale of Store Lambs Forward: 7,138 Head, Overall av £84.74 An excellent entry of lambs given the recent wet weather, but cows now getting housed and grass keep coming available, there was a packed ringside of customers right from the off at 10am and a very sharp trade ensued all sale.



First cross Continental lambs for short keep were a very good trade today, seeing a high number of pens £95 to £110, whilst strong medium keep lambs could command £88 to £96. Plenty of nice framed sorts mid £80’s and long keep lambs late £70’s early £80s. A few pens of Continental cross from hill lambs hitting the £80’s , with smaller sorts late £60’s to late 70’s.
Suffolk prices mirrored the first cross Continentals.
Beltex crosses were a strong trade as wintering customers come out looking for sheep. Prices for better end were £110 to £125, topping at £127 from T&C Robinson of Tosside. Beltex crosses averaged £101.25
Hill bred Sheep were forward in large numbers, just shy of 2000 Mule Wethers hitting £90 from M Stocks, Blackshawhead and a breed average of £82.29, Mashams to £93 from JM Wilson & Son, Beckwithshaw to average £86. Nice pens of Mules and Mashams in the main £80 to £86, smaller lambs form wintering mid to late £70’s.
500 Horned Wethers are generally smaller on the year, but were still mainly in the late £50s for nice Swales and Dalesbreds, odd pens in the £60’s, whilst a strong pen of Lonks made £86.50.
