There were 51 Spring lambs forward of a mixed variety, mostly heavyweight, selling to a top of £103 for 44 kilo Suffolks and to 234p per kilo for 40 kilo Charollais from Westerparkgate. The overall average was 225p/kg.

Saddlery

Another large show of 5,779 prime hoggs were forward to the usual ring of buyers, meeting a two tier trade with lightweight hoggs and export hoggs up to 44 kilos easily sold between 190 and 210p/kg with anything over 45 kilos proving very difficult to cash, unless of good quality. This is following the national trend, where too many heavy sheep have been kept, whilst demand would allow for more export weight sheep to be shown. The sale averaged 189p overall, but the SQQ (up to 45kg) was 198p which tells its own story.

Top price per head was £112 for Texels from Clyth Mains and to 223p per kilo for Texels from Hallburncroft.
