North West Auctions Kendal Mart held their first 2011 sale of cast cows, store cattle and store lambs. A pleasing entry of cast cows set off with a real bang this year. All cows were in great demand with an overall sale average of 97p/kg including a large number of plain grade cows. Cast cows sold to a top of 127.5p/kg from FW Park, Bannerigg Farm for a Belgian Blue. Cast heifers sold to 128.5p/kg for a Limousin heifer from R Gibson & Son, Singleton Park. Cast bulls sold to 103.5p/kg for a Limousin from SW Atkinson & Son, Capplerigg which sold for £988. An excellent entry of 650 store hoggs were forward to yet again a large ring of buyers. Many vendors were offering their final clean up of last year’s lambs. Despite this the sale averaged a superb £52.48 per head. A top price on the day of £68.50 was achieved by Messrs Clark & Johnson, Far Orrest with Texel x hoggs. There were many pens of lambs consistently over £60 per head.
