North West Auctions Lancaster Mart had forward yet another excellent catalogue entry of 400 Store Cattle last Friday.

The sale also included 85 Cast Cows and Over Thirty Month Cattle, 30 Rearing Calves, 6 Dairy Cattle and 86 Store Lambs. Store Cattle were a mixed trade depending on quality and type. Strong quality Store Cattle remained good to sell, however plainer types were cheaper on the week.

Top price of £1,070 went to Messrs H Gorst & Sons, Shaws Farm for Continental Bullocks. Heifers peaked at £860 for Continentals from K Whitaker & Sons, Stirzakers Farm. The ring of buyers remained full for the whole of the sale.

Earlier in the day a reduced entry of Rearing Calves topped at £235 for a Continental Bull from J & E V Thompson & Son, Hood Ridding. All calves maintained recent rates. In the Dairy Section a top price of £1,400 to Messrs D & T J France, Isle of Sky Farm for a newly calved Holstein Friesian Heifer. Close behind at £1,360 was James Lamb of Glasson Farm with a second calved Cow. Cast Cows were a shade easier although there were some plainer animals in this week. Trade averaged 84p/kg selling to a top of 127.5p/kg and £862.13 to Messrs E & N Wright & Sons, Allcocks Farm.
