An entry of lambs forward sold to return an average of 194.26ppkg, with a top price of 221ppkg for pen of lambs weighing 43kg making £95 from AE Casewell, Bodynfoel, and £113/head for 53kg lambs from D Bowen, Better Hope Farm, Haverfordwest.

A similar number forward which was pleasing considering the current good harvesting weather sold to a slower trade than last Monday with prices similar to other livestock markets later last week. All weights of good quality, well fleshed lambs sold to a good competitive trade throughout especially the heavier weight lambs which improved through the sale. With less heavier weight lambs coming onto the market trade for these types should remain strong. Lighter weight lambs again sold to a two tiered trade with good demand for the better bred, better fleshed lambs but any poorer quality types being more difficult to sell.

Lights (285) to 209ppkg from JH Morris, Brynaber. Others to 208ppkg from DI Jones, Cwm. Average of 192.84ppkg.

Standards (1027) to 217ppkg from J Edwards, Mount Farm. Others to 216ppkg from DD & MJ Evans, Pantywynthrew. Average of 191.38ppkg.

Mediums (1823) to 221ppkg from AE Casewell, Bodynfoel. Others to 220ppkg from EL Evans, Derlwyn.  Average of 194.55ppkg.

Heavies (221) to 216ppkg from HG Ellis & Co, Tynywern. Others to 214ppkg from HG Ellis & Co, Tynywern. Average of 203.32ppkg. 


This week saw a reduced entry of 1809 ewes with an overall average of £54.35 (down £7.65), however an increased entry of Welsh Type ewes. The best ewes in the market peaked at £133 presented by CE Pryce, Yr Helyg. Well fleshed Texel and Suffolk type ewes were selling at around £85-95. Best meated Welsh were still a good trade achieving £50-60. Leanest small ewes were harder sold. Well fleshed type Mules were selling between £70-80.
