Posted Tuesday, 12 October 2010, 12.50pm

North West Auctions Lancaster Mart had forward a pleasing entry of 32 prime cattle together with a reduced entry of 9 prime bulls and 1200 prime sheep.

The prime cattle trade was a little steadier on the week but there were still plenty of orders around the ring. Mr A Rayton of Winston Farm continued his excellent run topping the market at 175.5p/kg from a Limousin heifer which was purchased by G Blacklidge of Chorley. A much reduced entry of prime bulls were all commercial grade bulls selling to a top of 143.5p/kg for a Blonde x from Messrs TD & A Gardner, Larbreck Hill. Many more bulls were required on the day.

In the sheep ring lambs were rather better on the week to average 149p/kg. Lambs sold to a top price of £69 Suffolk x lambs from J Bargh & Son, North Farm, these were purchased by Lancaster Meat Company Ltd. £69 per head was also achieved by T & CM Kelsall & Sons, Brown Brook this time for Texel x lambs. A top price per kilo of 166p went to Messrs S Wilson & Son, Burrow Heights Farm for Texel x lambs. These lambs were purchased by Roy Schofield for MJ Birtwistle & Co., butchers of Worsley. The prime ewe trade continues to hold firm with all classes of ewe selling well.
