THE CATTLE MARKET
DUNSWELL
FATSTOCK AND FORTNIGHTLY STORE MARKET

Forward – 329 head of stock including 43 Cattle, 235 Sheep and 51 Pigs.

PIGS
More pigs forward this week and trade back slightly as a result. But still a reasonable demand for them, topping twice at 140p/kg for some nice tidy gilts from regular vendors that buyers know bring the quality. Sows steady now, looking like they’ve settled round about the mid 30s mark.

Cutters to 140p/kg and £135.33, average 124.1p/kg.
Heavy Gilts to 117p/kg and £149.76, average 100.0p/kg.

Cull Sows to 40p/kg and £111.00, average 36.5p/kg.
Cull Boar to 33p/kg and £112.20.

SHEEP
Another good trade for lambs this week, with the all in average for Springers at 304.1p/kg. Hoggs starting to fall out of favour now but many vendors clearing out with a lot sub 40kg today and not really fit for the market but you can only keep them so long.

Spring Lambs

Mediums to 316.1p/kg and £137.50, average 303.5p/kg.
