Prime cattle remaining at a very similar state with a base of 335ppkg. Angus have been hit hard as the premium has disappeared this week.
Cows are the shining light at the moment and remain positive with a base of 260-266ppkg with week, with fast uplift off farm. All shapes and sizes welcome and more needed each week.
Large numbers of store cattle have become available, all shapes, sizes and ages
Large numbers of prime lambs continue to come forward at the moment however the price is holding up with a base of 345-370ppkg, with prices up to £80.85 in the last week.
Even though the numbers are coming forward in large quantities we are keeping on top of getting lambs away as quick as possible and the vast majority are shifting in 7 days.
There are still significant numbers of leaner lambs coming forward at the moment, which may be reflecting the price not shifting as the quality is lower than one might expect. However after a dry spell in weather, there could be a jump in lamb volume now the grass quality will have a chance to improve.
Our outlets continue to offer plenty of confidence in the trade for the autumn.
Now that all the breeding sales are over if you missed the chance to get new breeding stock then don’t worry! We have large amounts of ewe lambs available all breeds.
