435 Spring lambs Av 171.02p/kg
Numbers continue to increase but trade back on the same time last year, but in line with the previous days average. Heavier and well finished lambs would commend a distinct premium and generally 180-190p/kg, but with a large proportion of smaller lambs lacking finish having an adverse effect on the overall average.
