Kendal Breeding & Store Cattle Sale 14/10/10

Posted Saturday, 16 October 2010, 12.52pm

North West Auctions Kendal Mart held their annual sale of beef breeding cattle together with store cattle last Thursday.

Buyers were selective on beef breeding cattle. Good quality and younger outfits sold well on the day. Older cows were harder to cash. Heifers with calves at foot topped at £1380 for a Limousin heifer with heifer calf from Messrs EJ Hodgson & Son, Lambrigg Head. Cows with calves at Foot sold to £1200 from Messrs RL & J Crowe, Hall Farm. A decent entry of Continental bulling heifers sold well mostly to local demand. A top price of £850 went to Messrs D & J & A Freeman, Town End Farm for an excellent pen of Limousin heifers. Breeding bulls sold to a top of £1300 for a pure bred Limousin from FI & ME Little, Helm Croft.

A young entry of store cattle again found the quality good to sell. A top price of £775 went to JW & HA Metcalfe & Son for an excellent pen of Continental steers. Heifers sold to £720 from G & ID Postlethwaite, Riddings, again for Continentals.

The best entry of cast cows for some time was widely regarded by the buyers as being the best entry of meaty cows for many months, These were in much demand selling to a top of 135.5p/kg for a Limousin from RH Thexton, Luneside. Cast heifers sold to 119.5p/kg for a Montbeliarde from Messrs JJ & MA Park & Son, Low Sizergh.
