WHERE HAVE ALL THE SHEEP GONE? REPORTS ARE THAT THE VOLUMES OF SHEEP ARE WAY DOWN ALL OVER! THIS SHOULD BE GOOD NEWS FOR THOSE PRODUCERS THAT HAVE STUCK WITH IT THROUGH THE LAST WHILE. THE LAMB MARKET WAS STEADY TO A BIT HIGHER ON SOME WEIGHTS. THERE ARE LOTS OF PEOPLE LOOKING FOR HERDS OF BRED EWES SO IF YOU ARE CONTEMPLATING SELLING , PLEASE GIVE US A CALL. THE GOAT MARKET CONTINUES STRONG BRINGING GOOD RETURNS . THE HOG MARKET WAS STRONGER THOUGH THE HIGHS WERE ABOUT THE SAME AS LAST MONTH BUT THE AVERAGES WERE UP QUITE A BIT. NEXT SHEEP GOAT AND HOG SALE GOES MAY 16. WE HOPE TO SEE YOU HERE.
