A reduced entry of 2140 cull sheep were presented this week, that achieved an average of £37.21. This was a rise of £2 on the average of last week and on the whole there was less bigger ewes present this week. The rise in the average reflects the stronger trade on the heaviest ewes this week. Top price of the day was achieved by Red House Farm that sold ewes to £115 and closely followed T & B Williams, Cilmawr that sold ewes at £110. Strongest Mule ewes sold to £82 and the best Welsh up to £56.
