Shetland Livestock Marketing Group in conjunction with Aberdeen & Northern Marts had 2175 lambs at their sale on Friday 22nd September.

Overall lambs did not meet last week’s high levels this was partly due to poorer lambs being forward and the national trend for lambs to be easier. Strong fleshy lambs were the exemption and held their value.
