North West Auctions Lancaster Mart’s second Friday sale of the year continued very much in the same vain as the first sale. An auction full of buyers enjoyed a marvellous entry of 420 store cattle together with 106 cast cows, 60 rearing calves and 30 store lambs.

Store cattle were a better trade than expected considering the mixed show of cattle forward. Yet again the sale averaged of £700 per head with bullocks topping at £1130 for Charolais x bullocks from JA Salthouse, Wilson House Farm. Indeed Mr Salthouse enjoyed a fantastic day topping the heifer trade as well at £1020 again for Charolais bred cattle.

Another excellent entry of cast cows perhaps lacked the overall flesh of the previous sale but still averaged a very pleasing 97p per kilo. A top price of 147.5p/kg went to A Dixon & Son, Kit Cragg with a Stabiliser cow at £811. The top price per head for cows was £904 to K & DE Woodhouse, Kitchen Ground Farm. Cast heifers average 124.5p/kg topping at 144.5p/kg for a Limousin from ST Birkett, Hall Croft Barn selling at £975.38. Cast steers topped at 129.5p/kg £856 from I Atkinson & Son, Boon Town.

An increased entry of rearing calves included an increased proportion of black & white bull calves. Despite this the trade averaged a very pleasing £90 per head for all bull calves and £150 per head for heifer calves. A top price of £350 went to R & A Battarbee, Newhouse Farm for a British Blue young bull calf. Heifers topped at £265 also from Messrs Battarbee again for a British Blue. Young Friesian bull calves under 2 months of age topped at £75 from G & ME Woodhouse & Sons, Boldens Farm.
