£350 a head for first prize Mule gimmer lambs

A full ringside of old and new buyers were present at Bentham Auction’s Great Annual Show and Sale of Mule Gimmer Lambs. Trade was very much as predicted with tupping and quality lambs good to sell and smaller running lambs harder to place.

First prize lambs from Andrew and Mark Brown of Great Asby topped the sale selling to Ron and Fran Wilson of Armathwaite for £350 a head.

Messrs DAJ Burton of Staffordshire took home the second prize lambs from Neil and Linda Allan of Killington at £210, while Alan Barnes of Great Harwood sold his third prize lambs to Roger Duncan of Bentham for £225.

The sale average for NEMSA lambs was £98.12 down £7.28 on the year.
