Auctioneer’s Report (Greg MacDougall): While averages may be slightly down, it is still worth noting that trade is still slightly ahead of last year’s prices. A very mixed show of quality with several consignments of store types included in the entry with vendors losing winter keep earlier than usual due to the ongoing wet weather and the high price of fertiliser. Better export hoggs in strongest demand with customers reporting a demand over the water. Heavies and more commercial types harder to place with the home trade currently very steady– the old saying ‘no two years are the same’ definitely ringing true just now. Early bought stores still paying well though and when they are ready the best advice is to sell away. Topping the night’s sale was J Garth & Son, Birk Knott realising £170 on two occasions with JR Metcalfe, Thirsk topping per kilo at 400p. Another nice run of mainly Continentals from R Skelton, New Hall sold to £166.50 with EJ Ward, Intack selling their best pen to £165. Joanna Andrews this week topped at £164 with another quality consignment forward. Best lambs 300p+ with commercial types 270-280p. Very few heavy hoggs getting much past £130 with a commercial type £120-£25. Mule trade in general £110-£118 topping at £129 with handier weights 257-267p. Swales to £116 from AJ Haggas, Otterburn.
