Auctioneer's Report (Greg MacDougall):

Auctioneer’s Report: (Greg MacDougall): The mornings sale set off with Ewes and lambs with all classes meeting with a strong demand. A nice continental shearling with twins sold to £250 from Joe and Sam Gorst, Killington with Texels to £180 for singles from C R Alderson, Mallerstang. In general Mules with twins around £180 with plainer sorts £150-£160. The hogg and lamb sale, all be it different to usual, got off to a good start with a run of homebred continentals from D&R Cornthwaite, Lockerbie selling to £220 twice. The section was topped at £240 from locals Frank and Sue Towers. Continental Hoggs in strong demand and short of requirements with trade in general £210-£220. A mixed show of quality in the Mule section, without a doubt a highlight of the sale being a wonderful run of homebred Hoggs with strong Suffolk lambs at foot from A R Edmondson, Hawkswell selling to £220 averaging £200 for the run. Best Mule hoggs in general either side of £200 with the next draw down £180-£190. Commercial sorts around £160 and looking well sold. Next special sale for Hoggs with lambs is the Annual Whitsuntide Sale to be held Wednesday 27th May with entries invited. Thank you. The May sale of Hoggs with Lambs has been one of the highlights of the auction calendar giving vendors the opportunity to take pride in showing their stock which sadly under present protocol is not allowed. A big thank you to those vendors who adhered to the drop and go policy without complaint making it possible for live sales to continue. Vendors are reminded to have both an ARAMS Sheep License and both parts of the new Sheep and Lamb entry form completed PRIOR to arrival at the market. The new Sheep and Lamb entry form is available on the webpage under the tab “entry forms”.
