Hogg trade remained every bit a buoyant as last week, albeit for less numbers forward. Well fleshed hoggs are still commanding premium prices as one or two vendors are starting with their end of season clear-outs. The ewe ring wasn’t quite the hustle and bustle bonanza we were treated to last week. Trade however was no disappointment and matched that of a fortnight ago. Power was distinctly lacking as the majority of lots forward were of the leaner variety.
