WEEKLY PRIMESTOCK SALE

 

Wallets Marts Castle Douglas Limited on Tuesday 26th May 2020 had forward 545 prime and cast sheep.

 

125 Spring lambs sold to average 227.41 (SQQ 230.5)

 

Huge shows of lambs in the South yesterday resulted in lambs being cheaper than Monday’s trade.  This being said as companies switch completely from hoggs to lambs more will be needed to fill orders in the coming weeks.

 

Lambs sold to £109 for Texels from Lagganorie Farm Trust, Gatehouse of Fleet.  Top price per kilo was 252.5 for sweet Texels from Messrs Wilson, West Barmoffity.

 

An end of season show of hoggs sold to a top of £85 for Texels hoggs from Low Creoch and topped at 193.9 for Cheviots from Irelandton.

 

Cast sheep were a lesser show for quality with overfat ewes hard to place.  Lean ewes in comparison were easily sold.  Top was £100 for Texels from Low Creoch.
