Limousin heifers peaked at 211.5p from J & J & D Taylor, Englishtown going to JB Fitton Ltd, also Limousin bullocks sold to 209.5p shown by Messrs Taylor, Dashwellgreen and purchased by MJ Wharton, Butcher, Wigton.

A similar show of 3,581 hoggs were forward to the normal ring of buyers, with trade emulating the national average this week – average 170.5p (172p SQQ). Export hoggs and best quality hoggs still in demand along with best fleshed heavy weight hoggs. The 44-48kg hoggs were hardest to sell and the lightweight hoggs easier. Too many hoggs lacking finish throughout the sale which reflects in the overall average.
