PRIME LAMBS (583)

A smaller entry of lambs forward sold to return an average of 267.87ppkg, with a top price of 312ppkg for pen of lambs weighing 33kg making £ from AK Lloyd, Ivy House Farm, and £121/head for 44kg lambs from FW Humphreys & Sons, Brook House.

A smaller number of Lambs on offer sold to a much stronger trade with good demand for all weights. Best demand for the better bred and well fleshed lambs with the best-selling weight being up to 42 kilos. Smaller weight lambs continue to sell to a strong demand as the numbers of hoggs dry up. Larger numders of all weights will now be required as fewer hoggs are sold.

Lights (2) to 266ppkg from DC Jerman, Ty Gwellt.  Average of 265.63ppkg.

Standards (247) to 312ppkg from AK Lloyd, Ivy House Farm. Others to 297ppkg from Bowen & Bowen, Penthryn. Average of 269.10ppkg.

Mediums (323) to 289ppkg twice from RE & CJ Davies, Boycott Hall. Others to 288ppkg from the same vendor.  Average of 267.02ppkg.

Heavies (10) to 252ppkg from RE & CJ Davies, Boycott Hall. Others to 246ppkg from J Corfield & Sons, Fairfield. Average of 224.9ppkg.

PRIME HOGGS (2212)

An entry of hoggs forward sold to return an average of 215.05ppkg, with a top price of 251ppkg for pen of hoggs weighing 39kg making £98 from CJ & LM Davies, Lawn Farm, and £107/head for 49.5kg hoggs from MPB Ashton & Son, Belanddu.

A much smaller number of hoggs on offer sold to an improved trade throughout especially for the better meated middle range export and supermarket weight hoggs (39-47kilos). Lighter weight hoggs continue to sell to a strong demand as numbers forward drop. Fewer heavier weight hoggs also on offer which created an improved trade throughout. Heavier weight hoggs continue to be most difficult to sell due to the lack of demand from the catering outlets. Hopefully this will change in the near future. Vendors with hoggs left are encouraged to make sure any hoggs sold are well fleshed as demand will continue throughout May.

Lights (123) to 228ppkg from C Roberts, The Cwms. Others to 223ppkg from DM Ellis, Y Dderwen. Average of 211.06ppkg.
