    Latest Sales Report

    • J36 Tuesday 17th October 2017

      Posted 18 October 2017
      Prime Lambs The weekly sale of prime lambs had a better trade than was anticipated with the J36 lamb trade better than many other local Auction Markets on the day. The overall market average was 164p/kg with lambs weighing between 39-45kg selling to an average of 167p/kg. A mixed entry of lambs, once again, made it slightly hard work with under finished lambs better off being sold as stores. Heavy weight, well-finished lambs were in strong demand. A good run of Beltex lambs from JG & PH Thompson, Poppy Farm, once again, topped the market selling around the 200p/kg mark. A single Beltex lamb from KL & G Patterson, Angerton Cottages sold to a top price per head of £103. TR…

    • Lancaster Dairy Sale - Monday 16th October 2017

      Posted 17 October 2017
      The monthly sale of Dairy had a smaller entry forward for the sale but there certainly was plenty of interest with many fresh purchasers as well as returning buyers from throughout the Northern counties. The pre-sale show saw an impressive line-up of heifers put before for the Judge Aubrey Greenhalgh of Great Eccleston to cast his expert eye over. The champion rosette was awarded to lot 1 a much-admired heifer from AB & J Parkinson & Sons of Liscabank, Out Rawcliffe with Liscabank Asterix Lead giving 38 litres which was met by some strong bidding selling to £2,350. The first heifer in the ring from H Wright and Son of Berryholme, Kendal set the trade off from selling a heifer…

      Prime Lambs A full ringside of buyers saw a larger entry of Prime Lambs forward which sold to an easier trade on the week. Prime Lambs sold to £83 from AJ Ellis of Staveley for a pen of Texels, who also sold others to £81. Lambs today sold to a top of 180p/kg, again, from the same home. Suffolk Lambs sold to a top of £75 for a pen of 15 from EE Thornton & Son of Heaton with Oxcliffe. An overall market average of 155p/kg was achieved. Cast Sheep A smaller entry of Cast Sheep forward this morning due to a larger number forward across the county affecting the overall trade.

There was a strong line up of rams forward for the pre-sale show and thanks must go to our judges Mr BH Williams, Mr S Huck, Mr S Watson, Mr JS Handley, Mr R Simpson and Mr D Stephenson as well as Mr J Capstick for standing in at the last minute. There were many admired rams out for the show with the championship rosette being awarded to the first prized shearling from the open class lot 139 from E & K Bland of Cotegill, Tebay with RF3100 sired by RF2621 Barugh Watch Me Go.

    • J36 Show & Sale of Suckled Calves - Thursday 12th October 2017

      Posted 12 October 2017
      Suckled Calves North West Auctions held their first suckler calf show and sale of the year on Thursday 12th October. Two classes were put before our judges Mr Stephen Chapman and Mr Derek Bateman where a tremendous show of calves was forward for the show. After much deliberation, the judges eventually gave the champion rosette to lot 269 a British Blue heifer from M & D Hatton, Knott End Farm, Broughton-in-Furness, which later went on to sell for £1040. Huge thanks go to today’s judges and our sponsors, Rural Law Practice Thomson Hayton Winkley and Boehringer.

      Pigs The monthly sale of all classes of Pigs saw a good entry of 126 forward for the sale. There was plenty of interest in prime gilts and hogs, but prime boars proved harder to place. Vendors are strongly advised to castrate their boars to gain full financial return. Good quality prime pigs sold in excess of 100p/kg topping at 117p/kg from Dhanell Baldwin of Satterthwaite or £100 per head from Dhanell Baldwin & NJ Wilkinson of Roose. Weaner pigs and store pigs sold to a sticky trade with there being less interest as purchasers have now filled their sheds with cattle due to the current weather conditions.
