Longtown Mart

A larger show of 4,613 prime lambs levelled at 197.1p per kilo, well ahead of most centres this week. Lambs 25-32 kilos averaged 206p and lambs 32-39 kilos averaged 200p, once lambs were getting over 44 kilos up to 50 kilos they were not worth a whole lot more and harder to cash. Handyweight lambs 34-38 kilos seem to be in much demand and short of requirements. The sale was topped at 219p per kilo for Dutch Texels from Messrs Sowerby Amoshill, with a top per head of £98.50 for Suffolks from Barnglies and Kilnfordcroft, others £91 Barnglies; Bleu d’Maine £97.50, £94.80 Middle Farm; Texel £96.80 Kilnfordcroft, £95.50 Low Longthwaite, £94.50 Pirntaton; Charollais £92.50 Pates Hill, £87.50 Newlands, £85 Nunscleugh; Greyface £85.80 Crosshill, £85.50 Slaterfield, £77.80 Woodhouse; Dorset £84.80 Edge; Beltex £84.80 Low Longthwaite, £77.20 Lanehead; Cheviot Mule £83.80 Earlside; Half Bred £78.20 High Moat, £74.80 Newlands; Blackface £75.50 Balgray Hill; Lleyn £73.80 Dolphinston; Herdwick £64 Tarnside House; Swaledale £61.80 Stonehall.
