Largest Entry of Cast Cows at Lancaster for Many Weeks

North West Auctions Lancaster Mart had forward an excellent entry of more than 400 store cattle last Friday. Also included within the sale was the largest entry of cast cows for several weeks with more than 120 animals forward. The store cattle trade was a decent level trade throughout the sale with plainer and longer keep animals the best trade of all. However, good quality strong cattle were also good to sell.

A top price of £1120 went to MS Dugdale & Sons, Tewitfield for a smart pen of Limousin Bullocks. Heifers topped at £870 from B Clark, High Fell Gate for Belgian Blue x heifers. In the cast cow ring there was a far greater proportion of plainer grade cows forward. Anything with meat continues to sell very well. The top price cow was 134.5p/kg for a Limousin from Mr K Kinrade, Ballaquark. The top price per head was £830.88 for a Limousin from ME Wannop & Sons, Heaton Hall.

A pleasing entry of beef calves this week with many buyers leaving empty handed. Top price of the day was £345 for a smart British Blue x Bull from JW & TE Sharp, Flodder Hall and heifers to £240 again for a British Blue from Messrs Sharp. 6 calves made over £300 this week with Black & Whites meeting an improving trade. Many more calves are needed to meet strong buyer demand.
