Less numbers on offer sold to a similar trade to the previous week with strong competitive bidding for the well fleshed better quality types of lamb on offer.

In most demand were the heavier weight 40kg-plus lambs due to less of these types being on offer, as vendors have sold lambs earlier and at lighter weights.

Overall, trade has settled around the 200-220ppkg level, but with numbers of hoggets now very low and most people being well on top of their lamb numbers, trade hopefully will increase.

Fewer lighter weight lambs were on offer, which sold to a mixed trade with the better bred, meated lambs selling very strongly but the leaner types selling around 200ppkg.

Heavies (15) to 137ppkg from A K & R C Tudor, Lower Heblands. Others to 130ppkg from R G Francis, Tyntwll. Average of 127.61ppkg.

Cull sheep (1,543):

As expected there was a smaller entry of 1,504 cull ewes with an overall average of £54.59.

Generally there was a slightly better trade compared to the previous week, even though the average was slightly less, but the ewes present were generally smaller.

There were not many heavy Suffolk x ewes present as seen in previous weeks.

That resulted in an improved trade on the week, with the best of these reaching £90 mark.

The best meated Welsh ewes were certainly dearer with the best Dolgellau type Welsh ewes reaching a very respectable £57.

Top price of the day of £120 went to E L Andrew, Trewern Cottage for Texel x ewes and to D T A Williams, Upper Bolbro.

An entry of 26 cull rams averaged £58.33 with the best reaching £90 from B D & H M Jones, Waen.

Cows and calves (37):

An entry forward of 37 cows and calves was a little bit down on quality compared to the last few weeks, with quite a few British Blue x Friesian outfits around, which seem a little out of favour these days unless the calf is a good one.

Nevertheless, quality was still well sought after with a top price of £3,200 being achieved for a Limousin x 1st calver with her Lodge Hamlett-sired heifer calf from I P Jones, Maestyddyn, Cerrig-y-Drudion.

From the same home were two further excellent outfits selling

for £2,200 and £2,020.

Presented by J E & J T Evans & Son, Upper Cefn Penarth, were 4 Limousin x 1st calvers with 3 bull and 1 heifer calves at foot which sold to a top of £2,140 to average £1,872.50.

From R W Owen, Geirn, Anglesey were 5 Limousin x 2nd calvers with Limousin x calves at foot which sold to a top of £2,250 with other notable prices of £2,200 and £2,000.

Presented by D P & R E Evans, Moelygarth were 4 Limousin x 1st calvers with Limousin calves at foot which sold to £2,100 and averaged £1,955 whilst 2nd calvers with Limousin calves at foot sold at £1,950 and £1,880.
