United Auctions (Wednesday 18 November 2020) sold prime sheep.
New season lambs (1031) averaged 196.03p per kg selling to 233p per kg for 43.5kg Beltex from Craigiebank, Keith and to £105 gross for 48kg Beltex from Craigiebank, Keith.
United Auctions Huntly, are proud to support and donate lambs to the Lamb for St Andrews Day campaign. Spearheaded by the Institute of Auctioneers, over 8500 pupils from 110 Scottish schools will be celebrating St Andrews Day by cooking and enjoying Scotch Lamb.
From today’s sale Messrs Cowie Carlincraig, Messrs Mair Kinnermit and Cobbleheugh Farms all kindly donated lambs to the campaign.
A smaller number of lambs forward met a brisker trade than that seen last week. All classes were considerably sharper, with heavy sorts some £10ph dearer. There was a serious shortage of numbers in the ewe ring today which saw many orders unfulfilled. All classes were sharper and many more could have easily been sold.
