Harrison & Hetherington Ltd held their opening show and sale of Store lambs here at Kirkby Stephen and it really did ring the bell!!.

894 Lambs forward sold to top at £116 for the first placed pen of 10 Beltex cross lambs consigned by Messrs Marwood, Hill Top Farm, Richmond and which were purchased by our show Judge Mr Beresford, Kirkby in Furness. 

The first placed pen of Mule lambs went to a pen of 19 from Messrs Thompson, East Unthank Farm, Haltwhistle which went on to make £87. 

Messrs Marwood, Hill Top Farm also took the first placed pen of Hill lambs with a pen of 10 Swaledales which sold for £50. 

The ringside was buzzing and packed with potential buyers from near and far!.  This resulted in what was described as strong a store lamb trade as seen so far this season with plenty of pens of all breeds of lambs making £85 - £92. 

Flash House Farms, Sheffield sold a pen of 20 Texel cross Mule lambs to make £92 and £91. 

All breeds and sizes of store lambs were a flying trade with an overall sale average of £80.40 being achieved for nearly all small to medium sized lambs, many buyers left empty handed and many more store lambs can easily be sold to great advantage here at Kirkby Stephen with our next sale being on the 16th August, entries taken until 10th August.
