The Sun Is Shining and Trade Remains Strong in All Sectors

Well the weather has bucked up and some folk have been getting on with third cut silage.

We got our Suffolks away at Longtown on Monday. It was the first time selling females and I was fair delighted when one of the gimmers sold for 600gns. The sale topped at 7,000gns for a ram lamb from Messrs.

Fittons, from Bolton, who went on to buy the top priced female, a Solwaybank gimmer, which made 4,000gns.

Elsewhere, store lambs sales have got underway to a decent trade although with the strong prime lambs prices some producers may be tempted to keep lambs to finish themselves.

Prime cattle trade remains buoyant as numbers tighten and this seems to be fueling the demand for stores which continue to be a fantastic trade.
