OSWESTRY LIVESTOCK AUCTIONS. MARKET REPORT.01:11:17.
What a lovely Autumn day at Oswestry Livestock today with a steady turn out of stock across the yard and a keen trade on all. Good to see so many vendors and buyers successfully trading their stock to mutual advantage. Although at only 160p/kg lambs were quite well sold bearing in mind the amount of mid weight welsh lambs and mule lambs that were on offer. Ewes firmer across all types, cattle section maintaining recent premium levels of trade, calves a better trade today.
