A similar number of lambs on offer sold to an improved trade throughout, with more competitive bidding on all weights and grades of lambs. Yet again better quality, better meated lambs were in most demand. Export weight lambs (39 – 45 kilos) sold to a much sharper trade with keener bidding on these types than in recent weeks. Again heavy weight lambs (especially the very heavy ones) continue to sell well with plenty of pens selling at £90 and above. Very few lighter weight lambs on offer and again these sold to an improved demand with a number of the better bred smaller lambs going back out, on farm, as store lambs. Vendors are encouraged to keep drawing lambs for sale especially the well fleshed types.
