THE CATTLE MARKET
DUNSWELL
FATSTOCK AND FORTNIGHTLY STORE MARKET

Forward – 273 head of stock including 19 Cattle, 163 Sheep and 91 Pigs.

PIGS
Good show of pigs again this week, and prices holding up well, not quite to the dizzying heights of last week, but generally a fair trade for all involved. Heavy gilts looking strong again this week, up to 100p/kg and over £130 with nothing massive forward today.

Porkers to 150p/kg and £128.25, average 146.0p/kg.
Cutters to 135p/kg and £130.95, average 124.0p/kg.
Heavy Gilts to 100p/kg and £130.50, average 72.5p/kg.

Cull Sows to 37p/kg and £127.05, average 33.9p/kg.

SHEEP
Unfortunately hoggs have dropped again slightly this week, but still well above prices seen historically at this time of year, trade for the older end continues to be held up well by a buoyant ewe trade, which shows no sign of slowing at the moment.

Spring Lambs
Standards to 315.8p/kg and £120.50, average 300.0p/kg.
Mediums to 321.4p/kg and £135.50, average 302.7p/kg.

Cull Ewes to £140, average £110.14.

CATTLE
Smaller show of cattle, with a lot of folks now being kept busy hay making, expected for the time of year though, with the main bulk of the spring cattle behind us as we head towards sheep sale time of year. Good trade for everything forward though, with some nice, short keep Limousin Bullocks from N W & S A Hall, South Kelsey really doing the business and selling to just shy of £1,400.
