The Sucklers raced away to 148ppkg for a Non FA Limousin from JA Barnes of Banks Head, others from the same home 136p or £901.74. Farm Assured sucklers also to 136p (£907.40) for a Simmental x.   Dairy Cows were a very lean show, a sign of the fodder times the good meated cows sold to 140p (£866.88) for a Foreign Montbelliarde Cow from J Meddins & Co, Churchstoke. Top in the lump was again from James £901.74,  133ppk for a 38mo Holstein Cow.   Plain heavy Cows were often 86-98p with lightweight and very plain Cows less selling from 69ppkg.   We have the customers for all in Shrewsbury if you are try your Cows elsewhere consider the strength of our feeding buyers who are after Cows for further finishing, just because you have finished with them may not mean they are finished!!!   REMEMBER IF YOUR TB FREE YOU DO NOT NEED TO TB TEST YOUR COWS TO BRING THEM TO MARKET!!   NOW THE TRADE IS BOUNCING BACK IF YOU HAVE COWS TO SELL DO NOT HEISTATE TO DROP SOME IN THE PLACE WHERE YOU GET ALL YOUR WEIGHT!!   BARREN COWS Lim x   94mo   754kg  £1115.92 Sim x   71mo   698kg    £907.40 Fries     37mo   678kg    £901.74   SPRING LAMBS (100) Auctioneer:  James Evans Overall Average:  166pp/kg An increased entry on last week, but still no real numbers and the trade is weak with no go in any of the meat companies. They will take the Lambs at a price, but they are all trying to get them around 160p/kilo mark. Standard weight Lambs (32 -39 kgs) averaged 166.43 p/kilo and sold to a top price of 183p/kilo (£65.80) for 36kg Lambs presented by Mr C G Hall.   Medium weights (39 - 45 kgs) sold to average 166.09p/kilo, with a top price of 174p/kilo (£76) for 43.5 kilos from Mr M S I Pinches. Heavy weights (45 -52 kgs) sold to an average of £166p/kilo with a top price of 177p/kilo (£85) from M/s CE & H Hanselman.   Over 52 kilos sold to average 160p/kilo with a top price of 174p/kilo (£94) from MR J P Bebb. The top priced Lamb in the Market was an impressive £100 for a 60 kilo Lamb presented by M/s W G Richards & Co. The demand is noticeably better for Lambs with meat and there is an increasingly two tier market between those with meat and those without.   MORE LAMBS FOR NEXT WEEK PLEASE!   25.5-32kgs 32.0kgs                 169ppk      £54.00  J R Ford & Daughter 28.5kgs     156ppk     £44.50   M J Betton   32.1-39kgs 36.0kgs                 183ppk     £66.00   C G Hall 38.5kgs                 177ppk     £68.00   P C Dudleston 37.5kgs                 176ppk     £66.00   A W Jones   39.4-45.5kgs 43.5kgs                 174ppk     £75.50   M S I Pinches 40.5kgs                 173ppk     £70.00   A G & R J Price & Son 40.5kgs                 172ppk     £69.50   K N Dodd   45.6-52kgs 48.0kgs                 177ppk     £85.00   C E & H Hanselman 47.5kgs                 172ppk     £81.50   J Hotchkiss & Son 49.0kgs                 171ppk     £83.80   D A & J M Embrey   52+kgs 54.0kgs     174ppk     £94.00   J P Bebb 60.0kgs                 167ppk  £100.00    W G Richards & Co 54.0kgs     167ppk     £90.00   W G Richards & Co     CULL EWES & RAMS (478)  Auctioneer:   Nick Griffiths There was a good entry of Cull Sheep this week with an increase in the amount of entries this week. Averages down on last week due to less quality entered, but with better meated sorts still holding their price well.   Plainer Sheep were the hardest to sell due to lack of buyer demand and fewer grazing buyers.   The top price of the day was presented by H Evans & Son for a pen of 3 Suffolks selling to £85 per head.   EWES   Ave £36.85 £85.00             H Evans & Son £80.00             L Thearle £80.00             WA & LV Gibb   RAMS   Ave £60.50 £91.00             G Davies ££82.00           G Davies £73.50             DF & MD Brassington      STORE SHEEP (1091) Auctioneer: Nick Griffiths A cracking entry this week with nearly 1200 entered overall.

There were 350 Store Lambs forward selling to a high of £66 for Charollais from Mr G Briggs, Wood Farm with Gary Waters selling Texels to £65.80. Plenty of demand here with 90% of the Lambs over £53. It was good to see Dilwyn Richards back in the Market after several months with his Texel Tup Lambs selling to £45, we wish him well. Nearly 300 Ewe Lambs offered sold to a high of £88 for strong Suffolks from Alan Potter with Jim Parry selling two bunches of Texels to £80. A good run of Texels from SM Cook sold to £75.   Breeding Ewes saw an improvement in trade which was somewhat against the flow in recent weeks in several markets.
