LERWICK - Shetland Livestock Marketing Group in conjunction with Aberdeen & Northern Marts sold 2573 store lambs, ewes, gimmers, rams and wedders on Saturday 22nd October 2016.

A very mixed show was on offer. Quality lambs and breeding stock was keenly bid for and a total clearance of these was easily effected. Poorer and leaner kinds were more difficult to shift but nevertheless this was done.
