A larger entry of lambs forward sold to a very strong trade to return an average of 250.58ppkg, with a top price of 289ppkg for pen of lambs weighing 36kg making £104 from IP Jones, Bryn Clochydd, and £114.50/head for 46kg lambs from BH Evans & Son, Rowton Grange.

Double the number of lambs forward didnt effect the price with a strong demand for all weights and grades. Best sold on the day were the 38-42kg well meated lambs which found competitve bidding throughout. Meated lambs of any weight sold well with the exception being heavier weight lambs (over 45kg), which were selling between 200-230ppkg. Smaller lambs 30-35kg also found a strong trade so vendors are encouraged to draw and sell their lambs early, especially when well fleshed.

Lights (20) to 266ppkg from PM Lewis, Dwylan. Others to 262ppkg from ES Morgan & Co, Bryndu. Average of 259.73ppkg.

Standards (400) to 289ppkg from IP Jones, Bryn Clochydd. Others to 281ppkg from the same home. Average of 255.14ppkg.

Mediums (999) to 274ppkg from JT Francis & Co, Pen Y Gaer. Others to 268ppkg from BH Evans & Son, Rowton Grange.  Average of 248.84ppkg.

PRIME HOGGETS (4688)

A larger entry of hoggets forward sold to a very strong trade to return an average of 211.62ppkg, with a top price of 251ppkg for pen of lambs weighing 42kg hoggets making £105.50 from CJ & LM Davies, Lawn Farm, and £113/head for 51.5kg hoggets from CL & C Watkins, Bank Farm.

A large bank holiday entry of mostly good quality, fed hoggets sold to a very similar trade to last week with most demand for the better quality well meated hoggs. Heavier weight hoggs sold to a firmier trade throughout with only the 60kg plus being difficult to sell. Middle range export weight hoggs sold to a competitve trade escpecially the better bred types. Smaller 30-40kg hoggs continue to sell very strongly, with more of these types on offer, but numbers not effecting the demand. As numbers dry up trade should remain good in the next few weeks, as long as not too many spring lambs come forward.

Lights (264) to 214ppkg from Jones Bros, Rhiwaedog. Others to 206ppkg from J Pugh, New House Farm. Average of 201.97ppkg.
