 182 Cull Sheep

A very good show of 182 Cull Ewes and Rams saw demand still up with recent weeks high levels.  Best Ewes were in short supply creating very brisk bidding to peak at £159/head for Continentals with Mules in the £110-£130 bracket and horned ewes in the £50-£85 range.


Ewes to £159              Ave £80.71

Tups to £154               Ave £129.86


246 Store Sheep

An excellent entry of 246 Store Sheep included 118 Feeding Lambs with a wide range of quality, demand still good throughout.  Best Texels peaked at £85, Char x to £84.

Just 3 lots of Ewes & Lambs saw Texels to £200 and Mules to £180.

Possibly the last sale of In-Lamb Ewes for the season attracted a lot of interest with Mule Ewes scanned in lamb to £160, Continentals Ewes r/w ram to £138 and Cheviot x Ewes to £74.
