More big prices and a lift in lamb trade this week

The dry spell continues, enabling folk to get on with harvesting maize cutting hedge.

The British Farming Awards last Thursday were a huge success. It was great to see the Mart's the Heart winners being given their awards and they certainly joined in with the celebrations.

Kirkby saw grand Swaledale trade, where a tup topped at 40,000gns and at Lanark, Blackface tups topped at 85,000gns.Suckled calf sales are in full swing, with a good trade for the best and younger animals, although bigger stores are slightly back on last year. The lamb trade has had a bit of a lift at the beginning of the week as numbers tighten. Let's hope it continues.

It's Agri-Expo on Friday, so maybe see you there.
