Livestock & Dairy: Bakewell Market

Bakewell Market Store Lamb Sale 26-08-2022

The catalogued entry of over 5,000 lambs drew a large contingent of potential purchasers from a wide area with a number making their first trip to Bakewell.

Given the dry weather conditions and lack of keep it was no surprise that trade was a little cautious, returning an average of £77 per head.
