Auctioneer's Report (Greg MacDougall):The Store Lamb season of 2020 got off to a flying start with a tremendous entry of 3063. With the current Prime Lamb price at a record high for the time of year and an abundance of grass buyers present from all parts of the UK all keen to ensure numbers, plenty would leave empty handed or short of requirements. Lambs on the whole in nice order although smaller than some years with the show mostly made up of genuine stores with strong sorts in short supply. The day’s sale topped at £92 for a tremendous pen of Beltex from DR & JE Ellison with the consignment averaging just over £83. WS Hudson & Son of Izaak Walton once again produced a great run of mostly Suffolk x Mules topping at £82 with others to £81 and RL & LE Kendal, Outgang equalling this price late in the sale. Travelling from Oxfordshire, RH Mole showed over 400 lambs mostly out of hoggs topping at £83.50 to average £74.85. Best bred and strong lambs in general £80-£90 with medium term sorts £75-£78. Long keep lambs looking particularly well sold with plenty in the high £60s. A decent entry of Mule wethers on offer with plenty of pens either side of £70 topping at £72.50 from Alex Denby, Moor Platt and JW Hall, Darnbrook. Small sorts around £60. A nice pen of Cheviots from J Tomlinson, The Marsh sold to £72 and Herdwick x lambs from ST & JE Foster to £69. One pen of Swales from new vendor BH & MJ Gray sold to £41. Next sale Tuesday 28th July with early entries invited and another hot trade expected. Overall average £71.60 (+£8.31 on the year for 894 more sold).
