PRIME LAMBS (4564)

A pleasing entry of lambs forward sold to an average of 195.12ppkg, with a top price of 250ppkg for pen of lambs weighing 43kg lambs making £107.50 from EL Evans, Derlwyn, and £115.50/head for 69.5kg lambs from I Hughes, Waen Farm.

A good number of lambs forward following the increase in price between Christmas and New Year sold to a strong demand throughout, especially for the better quality, better grading lambs of any weight. In most demand were the export weight lambs (39-45kg) with the heavier weight lambs also showing a much improved trade with plenty of pens selling to above £100 per head. Lighter weight lambs continue to find a strong demand especially the better meated types. Very few ethnic (28-32kg) lambs on offer which resulted in prices being very similar to before Christmas. Hopefully into the New Year trade for all types of lambs will remain strong.

Lights (358) to 203ppkg from RG Hodnett. Willey House. Others to 193ppkg from CJ Davies & Son, Waengwyn. Average of 177.58ppkg.

Standards (1474) to 221ppkg from M & H Owens, Glantre. Others to 217ppkg from Jones Bros, Rhiwaedog. Average of 195.03ppkg.
