Lancaster Friday 17/09

Posted Tuesday, 21 September 2010, 11.28am

North West Auctions Lancaster Mart’s weekly sale of store and breeding stock proved to be one of the busiest Fridays for several weeks and this market continues to grow.

A total of almost 700 cattle were sold on the day including an excellent entry of 134 cast cows & heifers. The sale also included 83 rearing calves & stirks, 18 dairy cattle & 100 store lambs. A fantastic entry of store cattle included a full range of breeds and grades. As always heavy short keep cattle were good to sell and with extra numbers in the market this ensured more buyers around the ring.

Top price of £1130 was given to MS Dugdale & Sons, Tewitfield Farm for a Limousin Bullock. Store Heifers sold to £950 for a Limousin from H Gorst & Sons, Shaws Farm.

Earlier in the day an increased entry of newly calved dairy cattle and followers included a consignment of Holstein Friesian bulling heifers from M Shepherd & Sons, Pasture House Farm. All dairy cattle were good to sell and the bulling heifers produced a large amount of interest selling to a top of £810 for 14 month old bulling heifers.

Top price in the In-milk section went to J Lamb, Old Glasson Farm. In-calf dairy heifers sold to £1150 from GJT & V Parkinson, Moss View.

The weekly sale of cast cows continues to grow. An excellent entry of 134 head this week were a shade less on average however, there were far more plainer grade cows in the market this week. Good meaty cows were still in much demand and again there were extra buyers around the ring.

A fantastic entry of calves and stirks sold to a ringside full of buyers. Top price of the day was £460 for a Simmental x heifer from C & N Shearing who also had Limousin Bulls to £420 (8 calves averaged £399!). Black & Whites peaked at £150 with buyers showing more interest in weaned calves with age & strength.

A small entry of store lambs were well sold and many buyers were left short of numbers.
