Sheep prime stock report

On Monday 25th March 2024 Lawrie and Symington Ltd sold 3694 Hoggs, 1107 Cast Ewes and 563 store Hoggs through Lanark.

The 3694 prime hoggs, including 924 Blackface were a mixed show for quality, resulting in a two-tier trade throughout. The best quality fleshed hoggs maintained recent high rates but smaller leaner hoggs defiantly easier. Heavy hoggs were still coming to good prices per head.

The sale topped at £278 per head for Texel from Messrs Campbell, Overburns Farm, Biggar and to 509p/kg for Beltex from Messrs A Baillie, Broomfield Lodge, Larkhall.
