There was a smaller show of prime lambs forward as a result of the drop in trade last week. Lambs met a solid trade throughout with the best continental cross sorts meeting a brisk trade, but heavier lambs proving harder to cash. Top price of the day was £93.80 paid for two pens of Beltex cross lambs shown by Messrs Dodd, West View, both bought by Mr Andrew Dawson. Top price a kilo was 243.8p paid for a pen of Beltex cross lambs shown by Messrs Thornborrow, Newbiggin Hall Farm, weighing 36kg they sold at £87.80 to Robert Skelton.
