A larger entry of lambs sold to return an average of 217.91ppkg, with a top price of 262ppkg for pen of lambs weighing 41kg making £107.50 from MRM Matthews & Co, Tanyfron, and £110/head for 43.5kg lambs from A Rees & Son, Tynllwyn.

Again a larger number of spring lambs forward sold to as expected a slightly slower trade throughout. Good competitive bidding was experienced on all well meated, well fleshed lambs. Most demand was for the export weight lambs 39-44kg which would consistently sell between 230-240ppkg. Lighter weight lambs sold to a slower demand than in recent weeks due to the upcoming ethic festival. Hopefully trade for these types will pick up again next week. Heavier weight lambs found more demand as the numbers of hoggets now are very low.

Lights (372) to 224ppkg from TD Rogers, Trelydan Farm. Others to 221ppkg from M Davies, Pantyrofyn. Average of 206.38ppkg.

Standards (1768) to 258ppkg from TH Vaughan & Son, Maesmochnant Uchaf. Others to 254ppkg from Red House Farm, Aberhafesp. Average of 215.07ppkg.

Mediums (1923) to 262ppkg from MRM Matthews & Co, Tanyfron. Others to 253ppkg from A Rees & Son, Tynllwyn.  Average of 221.79ppkg.

Heavies (128) to 228ppkg from DN Bennett & Son, Upper Hall. Others to 221ppkg from JR, RM & JP Andrew, Bronheulog. Average of 204.88ppkg.


A smaller entry of hoggets forward sold to return an average of 155.48ppkg, with a top price of 189ppkg for pen of hoggets weighing 45kg making £85 from MPB Ashton & Son, Belan Ddu, and £105/head for 67kg hoggets from MP Harding, Lower Cefnypwll.

An end of season entry of hoggets sold to a mixed trade throughout with a strong demand for any well fleshed hoggs of any weight. In most demand were the heavier weight hoggs with also a strong demand for well meated two toothed sheep. However still plenty of poorer quality, clearing up hoggs which were very difficult to sell.

Lights (169) to 170ppkg from RG Jones, Hafodty Ddu. Others to 168ppkg from RG Jones, Hafodty Ddu. Average of 153.58ppkg.

Standards (163) to 171ppkg from RG Jones, Hafodty Ddu. Others to 168ppkg from A Rowlands, Penygelli. Average of 147.49ppkg.
