Beltex lambs top Kirkby sale at 252.5p/kg

An entry of 2,334 sheep was forward at Kirkby Stephen Mart on Tuesday consisting of 2,038 prime lambs and 296 cast ewes and rams.  Topping at 252.5 p/kg was a pair of Beltex lambs from Messrs Dodd, West View and purchased by Vivers Scot Lamb.  These same lambs also topped per head at £104.80 (41,5kg).

Well fleshed pens of lambs were still in demand selling to rates above last year’s trade for the same week.  Buyers were looking for sheep with more meat with leaner sorts being harder to cash.  

Cast ewes & rams were a wonderful trade once again being similar to recent weeks
