A full line up of buyers expected on Tuesday 2nd January and a good entry required.



A good entry sold on a solid trade, topping at £170/head for Texels, although no very best Ewes forward.

The entry was dominated by Mules again, and these are not easy to sell with large numbers forward nationally. Nonetheless, the best selling to £95/head with plenty at £70-£80 for meated types and half-meated around £55-£65.

Overall average at £89/head.
