Livestock Sales Reports - Islay

Friday 10 September 2021

United Auctions (Friday 10 September 2021) sold 4721 lambs and sheep of all classes.

4270 lambs averaged £81.44 per head and 216.17p/kg (+21.07p). Lambs were shown in excellent bloom with the average weight being 1.4 kilo’s heavier on the year.  Despite selling some 1500 more lambs on the corresponding sale last year, averages rose by £10.74 per head.  Once again, this record entry of lambs attracted a good selection of buyers from throughout the country and again proves that there is no better place to sell your lambs than at your local market.
