Kington Fat Sheep Report Thursday 20th September 2018
Thu 20 September 2018
McCartneys of Kington report an entry of 1192 sheep on Thursday last the 20th of September.
The sheep trade has hit its difficult period as most people had expected. Both the fat lambs and the cull sheep are a more difficult trade and this has resulted due to thinner sheep being marketed and a larger amount of sheep being available to purchase nationally.
The buyers continue to require good meated sheep for their orders in all sections and thinner sheep are at a disadvantage at present.
There was good demand in all sections as long as the sheep were meat from a number of buyers.
