Similar number of lambs forward sold to an average of 177.28ppkg with a top price of 211ppkg for 42kg lambs making £88.50. This shows a increase in average of 10ppkg on last week. All weights and grades of lambs sold to a sharper trade with competitive bidding throughout. Again in most demand was the better quality, better meated (but not fat) lambs. Leaner smaller weight lambs also sold to a stronger trade due to the demand of store lamb buyers. Hopefully demand for lamb will continue to increase as winter progresses.

Today saw a shortage of larger well fleshed ewes. Ewes peaked at £98 presented by R Richard & Co, Maenllengen. Closely followed by HM Powell & Son, Whitehouse, with ewes to £94.

Overall trade was very much same, smaller unfleshed ewes were hard sold whilst Welsh fleshed ewes were still very much in demand.
