WALLETS MARTS CASTLE DOUGLAS LIMITED

TUESDAY 5 MARCH 2019

WEEKLY PRIMESTOCK SALE

 

Wallets Marts Castle Douglas Limited on Tuesday 5 March 2019 had forward 1002 Prime and Cast Sheep

 

634 prime hoggs sold to average 172.32 (SQQ 176.96).  A mixed show for quality were a lesser trade as has been seen at centres at the end of last week and start of this week.  Sheep lacking finish were noticeably less as were overfat and heavy sheep.  Well fleshed sheep up to 43 kgs were the easiest to sell.

 

Top today was £92 for Texels from Little Culmain, Crocketford. Top per kilo was a pen of smart Texels  at 213.3 from Messrs Campbell,  Tappit Lane, Elrig.

 

364 Cast sheep would be a touch sharper topping at £113.50 for Texel rams from Castlehill.  Ewes to £98.50 for Texels from Midtown.
