An entry of 3128 sheep was put forward at Kirkby Stephen Mart on Tuesday night, consisting of 2308 Prime Lambs, 718 Cast Ewes and Rams and 102 Store Lambs. Topping the sale at £94.30 was a pen of seven Dutch Texel lambs from Messrs Dodd, West View and purchased by A. Atkinson Topping at 228.6p/kg were a pair of Beltex lambs from Messrs Benson, Gamswell Farm, Ulverston and purchased by Vivers Scotlamb. Trade for all classes was fantastic being on par with the high levels of last week. The overall average was 20p/kg dearer than the same week last year and more lambs could have been sold to advantage. Store lambs were a very good trade also, with plenty of buyers being in attendance and the potential for many more to be sold.
