PRIME LAMBS (3141)

An entry of lambs forward sold to return an average of 211.03ppkg, with a top price of 235ppkg for pen of lambs weighing 39kg making £91.50 from LB Owen, Garth Vaughan and 40kg lambs making £94 from DD & MJ Evans, Pantywynthrew, and £112/head for kg lambs from CE Pryce, Yr Helyg.

Similar number forward sold to a similar trade to last week returning an overall average of 211ppkg which would be in line with other national and local market returns. Again best quality, better meated lambs found the most competitive trade especially these types over 40kg. Lighter weight lambs continue to find a two tier trade with strong prices for the better bred types but any poorer and leaner lambs proving more difficult to sell. With the current bad weather conditions slowing the number of lambs coming forward hopefully trade will improve in the near future, especially for the well meated lambs.
