Lancaster Friday 20 August

Posted Friday, 20 August 2010, 10.46am

North West Auctions weekly sale of store stock continues to grow from strength to strength. A fantastic catalogue entry of 430 store cattle

included vendors drawn from Lancashire, Cumbria and Yorkshire. The sale also included newly calved dairy cattle together with 250 store

lambs, 73 calves and 40 cast cows.

The store cattle trade was once again highly competitive with customers for all types of cattle especially for the stronger short keep types which

continue to sell tremendously well. Store Steers sold to a top of £1040 from JA Salthouse, Wilson House Farm for Charolais x bullocks. Store

Heifers were very dear all day averaging almost £700 and selling to a top of £950 for Limousin x heifers from Capernwray Parkland Farms.

Store Bulls could have been sold in greater numbers averaging £670 and topping at £920 from W Holloway, Charoland Farm.

A similar entry of cast cows were once again a rising trade averaging well over £1/kg for all breeds. Continental cows sold to a top of 129.5p/kg

for a Limousin Cow from AT Alcock, Carr House Farm. Cast Bulls topped at 109.5p/kg from Drinkall Bros., Catshaw Hall Farm.

Earlier in the day another excellent entry of young calves and stirks were every bit as dear with plenty of customers for black & white bull calves

and all types of continental calves. A top price of £435 was achieved for a British Blue heifer from J Hoggarth & Sons, Manor House Farm.

Black & White Calves sold to £265 for an excellent Friesian type from CR & A Baxter, New Brows Farm.

A small entry of dairy cows had more customers around the ring this week with an excellent trade for all ages of cow. A top price of £1580 was

achieved by J Lam, Old Glasson Farm for a 2nd calved cow. Mr Lamb also sold 5th calved cows up to £1100 per head which was very pleasing

on the day.

There were more store lambs forward in the market this week and judging by the number of buyers around the ring this is a market which will

improve rapidly over the weeks with far more numbers required. Trade was excellent on the day with lambs selling to a top of £58 per head for

Texel x from JP Farms, Fellside. Mule wether lambs were also in great demand topping at £49/head from E Parker, Marsh House Farm.
