An entry of 8 spring lambs averaged 220.78ppkg selling up to 270ppkg for 32kg lambs making £86.50 from R Price, Brynglas or £101.50/head for 47kg lambs from N Oughton, Lymore Farm.


An entry of 815 hoggs forward sold to return an average of 192.96ppkg, with a top price of 245ppkg for pen of hoggs weighing kg making £93 from GR & SJ Lloyd, Esgair Inglis, and £100/head for 48kg hoggs from CJ & LM Davies, Lawn Farm.

A greatly reduced entry due to the drop in price as a result of the Coronavirus, sold to a slightly improved trade throughout with enough demand to sell the numbers of sheep entered. In most demand was the lighter weight, up to 40kg hoggs with these generally selling around 200ppkg. Most difficult trade was for the heavy weight, 50kg plus hoggs which traditionally have been sold into the catering trade and therefore demand for these types has been greatly reduced. Slightly more interest on the middle weight export lambs as European markets continue to reopen.

Lights (49) to 209ppkg from NC & AGM Davies, Penysir. Others to 206ppkg from GW & C Jones, The Chalet. Average of 190.13ppkg.

Standards (234) to 245ppkg from GR & SJ  Lloyd, Esgair Inglis. Others to 210ppkg from DG & BE Jenkins, Gaerfawr. Average of 197.17ppkg.
