LONGTOWN MULE EWE LAMBS


The Cumberland & Dumfriesshire Farmers’ Mart P.L.C. held the annual sale of Mule ewe lambs on Tuesday 16th September 2008 when there was a catalogued entry of 5506.

Due to Bluetongue regulations, trade was sticky throughout the day with only top lambs easily sold. Running lambs upheld record rates, but middle lambs proved harder to cash.
