North West Auctions Lancaster Mart held their weekly sale of 553 store cattle together with 97 cast cows, 50 rearing calves, 4 dairy cattle & 50 store lambs.

The sale included a special Autumn Prize Show for pens of 4 store heifers. The judging was in the very capable hands of regular weekly buyer Mr Tim Parkinson from Yorkshire. For the second week running Messrs JJ & D Huddleston, Over Houses secured championship honours claiming first prize again with Belgian Blue Heifers. These sold for an excellent price of £1060 per head (picture above Mr Huddleston with the Champion Heifers).

Trade was again slightly easier but there were more plain cattle in the market. The quality end of cattle appeared to be just as dear on the day. Steers topped at £1070 per head for Charolais bullocks from Messrs Dugdale, Tewitfield.

A reduced entry of rearing calves this week still sold very well with once again a ring full of buyers for Friesian bulls being a feature of the sale. However, top price of the day was £322 for a British Blue bull calf from JG & BJ Escolme, Low Stanger Thwaite. In the dairy ring a small entry of cattle topped at £1180 for an in-calf heifer from George Parkinson, Moss View. In-milk heifers sold to £1050 from M Shepherd & Sons, Pasture House. Cast cow numbers continue to come forward very well. There was an increased number of buyers in the ring this week. Cast cows topped at 134.5p/kg for a Limousin cow from Messrs D & SA Robinson, Oakfield. This was purchased by Mr Charlie Anderson. Mr Anderson also bought the highest priced cast heifer at 129.5p/kg again for a Limousin, this time it was produced by T & M Halhead, Upp Hall. Over Thirty Month bullocks topped at 141.5p/kg again for a Limousin from Upp Hall.
