WEEKLY PRIMESTOCK SALE

 

Wallets Marts Castle Douglas Limited on Tuesday 4 July 2023 had forward 957 prime and cast sheep.

 

799 New Season lambs sold to average 308.35ppk.  Top today was £160.50 for heavy Texels from Messrs Nicolson, Brockloch and 332.1ppk for Texels from Messrs Cowan, East Lanegate

 

Cast sheep sold to £245 for Texels from Denty Texels with Scotch Mules to £125 from Straith and Blackface to £96 from Rusko Farms

 

Due to a tightening of numbers nationally, lambs took an unexpected upturn in trade although only if lambs were full of meat.  Plainer lambs lacking flesh although weight, were bid for cautiously so please going forward draw lambs for meat as well as weight and if any assistance is required, please don’t hesitate to ask any of the team – we are only too happy to assist in the drawing of lambs on farm.
