508 Sheep including 426 finished lambs, 8 store lambs & 74 Cull Sheep

Fewer numbers forward with trade very similar, and again the bigger weights hardest to sell. Well finished lambs up to 45kg generally upwards of 180p/kg to a top of 208p/kg, but a number lacking finish having an adverse effect on the overall average. Top price per head just over £98.
