An entry of 3651 cull ewes were present today, archieving an average of £47.95. This was down £8 on the previous week but there were many ewes in their wool present today that were much harder to sell. We strongly recommend to shear all cull ewes as premiums of as much as £20 can be achieved. Ewes peaked at £136 presented by CE Pryce, Yr Helyg, closely followed by DJ Lloyd & Co, Cefnbarrach and Davies Bros, Trefere Uchaf that sold ewes at £130. Rams topped at £125 from RE Evans & Son, Dinnant. Overall trade was much steadier, ewes needed to be well fleshed to reach the £70 plus mark.
