Longtown Store & Breeding Sheep Sale Report
C&D Auction Marts Limited had another good show of 590 Ewes with Lambs at foot and 89 Store Hoggs and Feeding Ewes forward at Longtown on Tuesday 26th April 2016.
A poorer show of quality outfits were forward, with the bad weather and lack of grass growth, farmers were not too keen to be bidding for sheep, although a premium was definitely realised for outfits with stronger lambs.
A smaller show of 89 Store Hoggs were forward, all sheep, whatever shape or size sold to recent high rates. Sale topped at £70 for Texels from Croys Lodge.
