Dumfries Mart Pig Sale Report 9/8/21

A smaller entry of 63 pigs were forward for the monthly sale at C & D Auction Marts, Dumfries on Monday but quality was particularly good and a number of new buyers were present; a strong trade resulted with demand outstripping supply.

The sale was topped by an exceptional young pure-bred Pietrain sow with a litter of twelve crossbred weaners at foot from Mrs Shona Stevenson, Ayrshire, which sold for £600.  A good class of maiden gilts were led by a one-year-old Pietrain gilt at £200 from Master Ramsay Stevenson, the first of his own reared pigs.

A super pen of Large Black bacon pigs from Ardyne Estate, Argyll made to £200 with cutters to £160 and £120.

Weaners met the best trade for some months to £92 for Large Blacks from Ardyne, £72 for Tamworths from Newlands and £72 for Pietrains from Eden Lodge.

The next monthly pig sale will be on Saturday 4th September following the Special Sale of Pedigree Breeding Pigs.
