Market Prices - Tuesday 30th April 2019
A very short entry on a day when many more could have been sold to what was a good trade on all weights available. A small entry of finished hoggs with an SQQ of 208 p/kg with standard and medium lambs receiving a premium. More hoggs and new season lambs required to satisfy demand and would advise vendors to contact the auctioneers with numbers ahead of the sale next week to inform buyers. A total of 78 ewes to a very fast trade on all sorts but general lack of strength with plain ewes selling extremely well. Please note that buyers are looking for New Season lambs in the coming weeks.
