United Auctions (Wednesday 8 July 2020) sold 1000 prime sheep.
New season lambs (491) averaged 218.6p per kg to 263p per kg for 38kg Beltex from 14 Balloch Road, Keith and to £123 gross for 67kg Tex from Logie Durno, Pitcaple.
A larger show of lambs forward averaged slightly less on the week, however with more weight around the gross price per head was comparable to that of last week. The ewe ring was lacking real “Lambourgini” style pure ewes today with not a single one forward. Trade overall was every bit as dear as last week with overfat ewes in particular enjoying an unseasonal price increase.
