North West Auctions Lancaster Mart had an excellent finish to the 2010 store & breeding stock Friday sales. A better than expected catalogue entry of 225 stores were forward through the ring together with 28 rearing calves and one of the largest entry for many months of cast cows and over thirty month cattle. Indeed a wonderful entry of 117 cast cows were sold to average of 84.5p/kg to a packed ring of buyers. Top price of 151.5p/kg went to M & L Preece, High House Farm for a Limousin cow. There were many cows well over 140p/kg throughout the sale. Black & White cows with meat were also in much demand selling to a top of 139.5p/kg from J & H Bland & Son, Ninezergh. This cow also produced a top price per head of £913.73. Cast bulls were also in good order throughout the sale selling to a top of £1064.25 from J & O Galbraith, Endmoor Farm.

In the store cattle the store trade finished the year in very sharp fashion. Both steers and heifers averaged well over £700 per head throughout the sale. Top price of £1050 went to J Bargh, Old Woodhouse for a superb Simmental bullock. Heifers topped at £970 again for Simmental bred cattle this time from P Lawrenson, Walmsley Fold.

A small entry of rearing calves found best beef calves very dear on the day selling to a top of £370 for British Blue bull calves and £385 for British Blue heifer calves. Both top prices were made by K Purtill, Hindley Green.
