Pedigree and store trade still good

Well I attended Lamma last week. It was unbelievable; a vast sea of all types of tractors and machinery as far as your eye can see, set on over 200 acres. Not an animal in sight! It was so busy with folk and I’d say this is a good event to get a gauge on how the tractor market will fair for the rest of the year.

At home it’s been much of the same, multi-vitamining and fluking ewes and generally looking after the lambers.

Pedigree in-lamb sheep sales continue, with Bluefaced Leicesters selling to £10,200 at Hawes at the weekend, where Swaledales were a good trade as well. Store cattle and sheep trade still seems strong, even though prices are not too exciting in the prime rings, although hoggs have been a slightly better trade for the best at some markets at the beginning of the week. 

Sales coming up this week
  • Friday, January 27 - Dispersal sale of the Soutra Suffolk flock at St Boswells Mart.
  • Friday, January 27 - Stone machinery sale at The Gallops, Kidderminster, DY10 4AR.
  • Saturday, January 28 - Flock dispersal sale, from Hilltop Farm Partnership, of Mule and Suffolk in-lamb ewes at Newark Livestock Market.
  • Saturday, January 28 - ‘Rough Diamonds’ in-lamb Rough Fell females, annual show and sale of Bluefaced Leicester females, plus a multi-breed sale of in-lamb females all at J36 North West Auction Centre, Kendal.

Enjoy your week.
