628 Spring Lambs Av 209.05p/kg

Another respectable show but a number of the entry showing the effects of the rain overnight. Trade a little back on the week, reflecting the wet conditions and some of the lambs lacking a little finish. Best quality well finished lambs never the less in keen demand to tops of £117 per head and 249 p/kg
