ABERYSTWYTH MARKET REPORT
2nd September 2017
ENTRY – 2079
A smaller entry than anticipated with many producers taking advantage of the fine weather. There was a strong demand for breeding stock with many buyers in attendance especially from Pembrokeshire. The killing ewes met with a mix trade with the heavier types selling well with less demand for the lean lighter sorts.
The store lambs sold well especially the heavier types those over 40kg.
