A entry of lambs forward sold to return an average of 162ppkg with a top price of 203ppkg for pen of lambs weighing 43kg making £87.50 from S Lane, New Hall, and £99/head for 68kg lambs from HW Thomas, Hengaeua.

A smaller number of lambs forward, due to a lot of Vendors being on a movement standstill, sold to a slightly better trade than last week, which was in line with other local and national livestock market prices. Again, most demand was for the better fleshed lambs and better bred/quality types which still continue to sell to above 200ppkg. Heavier weight (especially 55+ kilos) found a competitive trade and were sold at slightly better prices than last week. Light weight, under 35 kilo lambs also found a bit more demand, especially the better meated ones. Most difficult to sell on the day were the second quality, mid-weight lambs especially if they were leaner, and all Vendors are encouraged to draw their lambs which are well fleshed, in the coming weeks.

Lights (150) to 170ppkg from E & E Jones, Rhiwgam. Others to 169ppkg from L Botwood, Caestogion. Average of 162.78ppkg.

Standards (482) to 191ppkg from B Hughes, Tynewydd and DWP Griffiths, Park Lodge. Others to 186ppkg from RJT & GE Jones & Son, Penwtra. Average of 163.86ppkg.
