With Easter approaching a few more spring lambs were forward and trade increased significantly for all types.  In most demand were the best quality, handier weight springers which created strong competitive bidding throughout. Vendors are encouraged to sell their lambs at any weight as long as they are well meated as demand for lighter lambs is also very strong. Next Monday sees the annual Easter Show and Sale of Spring Lambs, for which entries are encouraged.
