Livestock & Dairy: Bakewell Market

Bakewell Market Store Lamb Sale 19-11-2021


The penultimate Store Sheep Sale of the 2021 season saw a catalogued entry of 2,332 sheep and a blistering trade for all on offer.

As expected, a number of tail end smaller lambs within the entry but still selling to a top of £113 and an overall average at a very respective £96.28 per head.

Purchasers gathered from far and wide with a large contingent from both North and South Wales and the border counties with all types looking extremely well sold on the day.
