A marvelous entry of 32 cows were offered to the usual good company of eight buyers who bid freely for all types of cow, with demand outstripping supply. Andrew Ewing fetched a wonderful load of cows which topped at 150p for a Limousin, with others to 143p. Continental passport cows sold to 132p for a Blue. Native bred sucklers sold to 112p from John Higgs with Angus to 110p. The Bradbury family renowned for selling quality store lambs sold an aged Welsh Black to 98p.

A larger show of 2,817 lambs were forward to a busy ring of buyers all actively looking for lambs and many going home short of requirements. This resulted in the best average of the week of 197ppk. An excellent entry of Texel and Beltex export lambs met a flying trade from start to finish, with heavyweight lambs 45kg plus keenly sought after and still well short of supply. Lightweight lambs were scarcer in numbers after last week’s dip, however rallied around to get back in front of store trade. Many more lambs in all categories could be sold to vendor’s advantage.
