Strong Prime prices at Newark mart

Well it’s been a horrendous few days for us as our two Patterdale terriers went missing last Friday.

We are not sure if they are stuck underground somewhere or have been taken.

If anything positive can come out of this gloom is how blown away we have been with the waves of support from the farming, rural and local communities. Folk have been more than kind and have been out looking for them and dropping off posters.

We’ve posted on Facebook and that has really taken off, with many people sharing posts, sending encouraging messages and words of advice.

It's been the last of the winter fairs this week, with Blair Duffton winning at both Thainstone's Christmas Classic and the Royal Welsh Winter fair, that is some achievement!

We are in the thick of in-lamb ewe sales, with trade looking pretty decent so far. Store cattle are trading solidly on the run-up to Christmas.

The Mart's the Heart Christmas fatstock show and sale at Newark livestock mart saw some strong prices, with the champion British Blue cross heifer from Frank Page making £4.30 per kilo and overall prime prices were pretty strong.

Sales coming up this week
  • Saturday, December 3 - Show and sale of pedigree Texel females for the Gloucester Texel Club at Worcester Market.
  • Sunday and Monday, December 4 and 5 - Mart’s the Heart-supported Bakewell Christmas primestock show and sale at Bakewell Market.

Enjoy your week.
