Posted Friday, 03 December 2010, 1.28pm

North West Auctions Lancaster Mart had forward a weather induced reduced sale of store and breeding stock last Friday. There were 240 store cattle entered and all classes showed a substantial rise in prices over recent sales. Store bullocks averaged £765 throughout topping at £1100 for a Belgian Blue bullock from Pheonix Grain Co., Newhouse Farm. Store heifers averaged £710 selling to a top of £900 from JT & A Armitstead, Bouthwaite Farm for a Blonde x heifer.

Earlier in the day a small entry of rearing calves found best quality beef types in great demand topping at £430 from Messrs R & A Battarbee, Newhouse Farm for a British Blue bull calf. All calves were in demand on the day including plain Black & White calves.

There were only 44 cast cows and over thirty month cattle through the ring last Friday and many buyers went home short of numbers. Consequently cows were an excellent trade to average almost 100p/kg selling to a top of 134.5p/kg for a Limousin cow. Over thirty month steers sold to 141.5p/kg for a Limousin from J & M Cottam, Hill Top Farm.

An increased entry of store lambs included a substantial consignment from Messrs Scott, Newton Villa. These were good quality lambs which met much interest around the ring selling to a top of £64 per head for Suffolk x lambs.
