PRIME & CAST SHEEP
1191 Prime & Cast sheep sold.
907 lambs sold averaged 160p/kg with good fleshed lambs every bit as dear as last week but not for the first time, lean, under fleshed types were no use to sell. Top price of £82.20 was paid for a pen of Heavyweight Texels from A Henry, Viewhills and to 180.5p/kg for a pen of Beltex from W Kerr, High Boreland. Cast sheep very similar with good fleshed stock easy going, leaner types going for further keep. Top price £118 was paid for Beltex tups from T McGarva, Barwhanny. Texel cross ewes sold to £97 from N Paterson, Little Ervie. Mule ewes sold to £81 from Castlewigg. Blackface ewes sold to £50 from R Jamieson, Garrochtrie.
