CATTLE TRADE THE BEST FOR MANY WEEKS

North West Auctions held their weekly sale of primestock last Monday at Lancaster Mart.

A slightly reduced entry of 1635 prime sheep found lambs trading at a little less than the previous week’s great

trade. However, an overall average of 167p/kg pleased most vendors and as usual there were both wholesale and

retail butchers orders around the ring on the day. The top price per head was £81 for Texel x lambs from

Andrew Butler, Parks Farm Barn whose lambs made 193p/kg and were purchased by Samuel Howarth Ltd

Butchers of Diggle.

A reduced entry of Prime ewes average over £50 including all hill sheep. Heavy lowland ewes were in much

demand selling to a top of £107 from JA & R Geldard, Low Foulshaw.

Prime cattle were the best trade for some weeks selling to a top of 188.5p/kg for a prime heifer from A Rayton,

Winston. The Limousin heifer was purchased by MJ Birtwistle & Co. Ltd butchers of Worsley. Prime Steers were

also very good to sell on the day topping at 182.5p/kg for a Limousin from

TH Garnett & Son, New Close Farm. This was purchased by CJ Bowker, butcher of Bolton-le-Sands.

Prime bulls also met a good uplift on the week selling to a top of 167.5p/kg for a Limousin from T Scarr,

Dales View. Mr Scarr also sold the top priced per head at £1003 again for a Limousin bull.

Many more prime cattle could easily have been sold on the day.
