DINGWALL, Dingwall & Highland Marts Ltd., (April 12th) sold 1,254 prime sheep.
Old season lambs (1,118) averaged 253.6p (-2.2p) and sold to 283.3p for a pen of 42kg Beltex crosses from Drakemires Farm, Newmill and £153 gross for an 82kg Blue Faced Leicester from Sonnenalm, Dufftown.
Feeding sheep (136) sold to £312 gross for a Texel cross ewe from Wester Raddery, Fortrose.

“Hogg trade was sharper on the week, however this rise wasn't reflected in the sale average as more weight was on show. Well fleshed sorts of all weights were keenly bid for however leaner sheep met more of a hesitant return than of late. Another phenomenal ewe trade was had in Dingwall again with not only a colossal average of £134 per head being recorded but centre record and a British record being achieved for a cull ewe sold. Enter the ring Mr Phillip Gill with his humdinger of a Texel ewe which cashed in at an astonishing £312. Overall trade was on fire yet again and the only disappointment of the day was that there wasn’t enough to satisfy the buyer’s order book.”

*Notice to Vendors*
Could all vendors of prime lambs please deliver their lambs to the Mart before 10.30 A.M. to allow us time to have them clipped prior to the start of the sale. Thank You.
