Anyone sold any lambs today? Saw welshpool were back a bit yesterday

I’m glad to hear they were back yesterday. I had 88 in which, all bar 11 of a narrower white faced breed, were one of the best run of lambs I’ve ever taken there. There were a couple of Beltex x Charollais ewe lambs in there, which didn’t stand out.
In usual market tradition, every pen was 44 or 44.5kg, despite them being spread from from 44 to 47kg at home (7 miles away).:rolleyes:

They made between £100 and £104 per head. A fiver or so better than the 44kg lambs that went dw to Kepak last week, but disappointed they weren’t better.

How did the goats sell? I’m thinking of trying a few there, sent 120 DW yesterday but they must have got their scales from the same place- or worse☹️

That’s about it. That particular Mr dw has been taking the p*ss with his trimming knife of late I reckon.😡

What I was most pee’d off about was the narrow, leggy Exlana pen making the same money ffs!
Same place I send mine DW?
lambs this year were killing out poorly early on but the last lot I sent I was very happy with - a lot of people saying grading has been all over this year 🤷🏻‍♂️
