Dumfries Mart Pig Sale Report 7/02/22

At Dumfries on Monday, C & D Auction Marts held their monthly sale of pigs of all classes.


Reflecting national trends trade was mixed, particularly for weaners and stores and a good ringside of buyers bid selectively with breeding and butchers pigs in most demand.


The day’s trading was topped at £189.00 each for a pair of in-pig pedigree British Saddleback sows, from Mrs Rowan Simms, Masham, North Yorkshire.  These were bred pure to a breed champion boar.


Heavy Cutters sold to a top of £150.00 from a consignment from Mr D. Morley, Kincardineshire.  Other cutters made to £95 and £85 with growers and weaners to £50.00 and £40.00 respectively.


The next Dumfries monthly pig sale is on 7th March.
