Kendal Thursday 11/11

Posted Friday, 12 November 2010, 1.12pm

North West Auctions Kendal Mart had forward an entry of 56 Cast Cows & Over Thirty Month Cattle, 885 Store Sheep and 50 Store Cattle last Thursday.

As usual at this time of year there were a lot of plain cows forward and these were cheaper than recent sales but much in line with the national trend. Meaty cows were good to sell throughout the sale. A top price of 121.5p/kg was given to Messrs JA & J Harper, Capplethwaite Hall for a Belgian Blue Cow. Cast heifers topped at 111.5p/kg for a Friesian from R & EA Gardner, Barrowfield.

In the store ring a small entry of store cattle had a ring full of buyers and were the dearest trade for several sales. A top price of £730 went to Messrs CF Hoggarth & Son, Low Hundhowe for a pen of young Limousin bullocks. Heifers sold to £655 from Messrs JD, EM & JA Atkinson, Low Groves Farm and again these were Limousin bred.

Kendal’s store lamb sales continue to grow from strength to strength and another excellent entry of all breeds were felt by many to be even dearer than last week’s tremendous sale. There were buyers and orders the length and breadth of the country and all lambs were in much demand. A top price of £68 went to Messrs Westmoreland-Nicholson, Howe Farm for a pen of Continental x lambs. Mule lambs were yet again in great demand topping at £64 from Messrs Caley & Mitchinson, Castle Syke. Hill lambs were the best trade of the season with Herdwick lambs to £43.50 (Long Green Head) Swaledales to £41 (Audlands Park) and Rough Fell wethers to £40 (Gaisgill Row).
