North West Auctions enjoyed a tremendous store sale last Friday at Lancaster. An excellent entry of 315 store cattle were a very dear trade with a ring full of buyers drawn from throughout the North of England.

Heavy cattle were as always in great demand. Store steers averaged £740 for all breeds selling to a top of £1090 from JA Salthouse, Wilson House Farm for a pen of Limousin x cattle. Store Heifers averaged £730 selling to £900 from TE & BM Makinson, Holmegath Farm and also from A Mahon, Cleveleys, both lots were Charolais bred.

A reduced entry of store bulls sold to £670 from Messrs Preece, Thornbush Farm.

Earlier in the day an excellent entry of 75 Calves were as dear as ever with plenty of buyers for both Black & White bull calves and Continental bred calves more of which could easily have been sold on the day. Bull calves sold to a top of £400 for a British Blue bull calf. This was produced by Messrs Sharp, Flodder Hall. Heifer calves also topped with a British Blue from Messrs Sharp and this made £385.

The weekly sale of cast cows saw more than 50 animals through the ring. Cast cows were predominantly dairy bred and these averaged 92p/kg and indeed it was a Holstein Friesian cow which topped the market at 119.5p/kg from Messrs JP & V Townley, Greenalls Farm. The same price was also achieved for a cast Holstein Friesian heifer from Messrs Inman, Milton Moor Farm.

The weekly sale of newly calved dairy cattle found most dairy animals rather cheaper than the previous sale. However, new calved cows still topped at an excellent £1500 for a Holstein Friesian from J Lamb, Old Glasson Farm. Newly calved heifers sold to £1150 from R Hughes, Brewers Barn.
