Welshpool Livestock Sales report on the Sale at Buttington Cross on Monday

A larger number of OTM cattle on offer this week, seeing a top price of £1162.04 (139ppkg) for a Limousin x OTM weighing in at 836kg from CV & EM Lewis, Buttington New Hall.

A similar entry of lambs forward sold to return an average of 176.01ppkg, with a top price of 230ppkg for pen of lambs weighing 33kg making £76 from S Lewis, Sychllyn, and £102/head for 69kg lambs from DN Bennett & Son, Upper Hall.

Again, a similar number of lambs on offer sold to a stronger trade throughout for all weights and grades of lambs, as  the fears over Brexit subside for a while, and numbers of lambs in the country, coming onto the market, reduce slightly. Best quality, well bred, better shaped lambs sold to a very good trade selling up to 230ppkg with plenty of other pens selling above 200ppkg. Better bred export and supermarket weight lambs (40 – 48kg) found a good competitive trade as did the heavier weight lambs with a new buyer present looking to purchase stronger well meated lambs, which resulted in plenty of lambs selling above £90 per head and up to £102. As in recent weeks, smaller weight lambs met a strong demand for all breeds with again, a good number of the better bred lambs going back on farm as store lambs. Most difficult to sell on the day were any over fat lambs of any weight.  Overall a good strong competitive trade throughout the sale and Vendors are encouraged to keep drawing well meated lambs every week.
