Market Prices - Tuesday 6th August 2019
A better entry of finished new season lambs with an overall SQQ of 188p/kg with medium lambs receiving a premium. A fantastic trade throughout with averages much higher than recent weeks with a new buyer in attendance. Although a slow trade was received on lighter lambs. A total of 118 ewes to a reasonable trade on all sorts but general lack of strength with plain ewes and thicker ewes still harder to place.
