FATSTOCK AND FORTNIGHTLY STORE MARKET

Hull Livestock Market – 13th December 2021 – Fatstock & Store Market

Forward – 432 head of stock including 28 Cattle, 295 Sheep and 109 Pigs.

PIGS
Pigs very similar again this week, a little bit of premium from the butchers for high quality pigs over 100kg but still not startling. Sows about a penny up on the week but quite a lot of well-fed sows forward today.

Porkers to 69p/kg and £59.34, average 58.7p/kg.
Cutter Boars to 54p/kg and £49.14, average 54.0p/kg.

Cull Sows to 17p/kg and £39.62, average 13.3p/kg.
Cull Boar to 29.0p/kg and £58.00.

SHEEP
Sheep continue with an absolutely storming trade! Some real quality lambs forward today and prices to boot, with over 35% of lambs forward commanding over 300p/kg, topping at 331.7p/kg from N R Wild, Newbald or £147 from E Brown & S Suddaby, Bempton. Large show of store lambs today and very little through the store pens that could be considered short keep, yet still averaging over £113 all in on the day, including a number of rare breed types.

Spring Lambs
Standards to 310.3p/kg and £121, average 306.3p/kg.
Mediums to 331.7p/kg and £131, average 303.0p/kg.
Heavies to 282.7p/kg and £147, average 275.7p/kg.

Cull Sheep to £145, average £105.55.

Store Lambs to £138, average £113.05.

CATTLE
Last Cattle market of 2021 and a much smaller show than we have seen in recent weeks, as would be expected as we now move into December and a lot of people are bought up for the winter. Trade was still good for store cattle though, please don’t hesitate to bring them forward in the New Year. A very varied show of calves but buyers there for all types and everything looking reasonably priced. Next Cattle & Calf market is 10th January.
