Sheep prices

After going into something of a slump through January they seem to be up a little this week but it is unclear if this is a proper trend due to the lower pound, or as some say a weather-delayed consignment from NZ!

The ones I took to Ruswarp Monday were 44kg and 46kg and made £54 and £58.
This is still down on 42kg ones sold December for £64 but a couple of weeks ago they would have barely made £50 by the sound of things.

Meanwhile store cattle are still in great demand.
Two plain looking Limousin steers which were twins who had been bucket fed (as their mother died) got to £850 at Malton last Friday.
