BIG RING OF BUYERS AT LANCASTER

North West Auctions Lancaster Mart enjoyed another very brisk days trading last Friday. Perhaps the largest crowd of purchasers yet completely filled the ring ensuring a strong trade for all types of cattle. Store bullocks averaged almost £760 per head being one of the best averages of late topping at £1090 for a Limousin from Jim Clark Ltd, New Hall Farm. Store heifers also averaged an excellent £723 topping at £1000 for Charolais x from BN Greenwood, Lonsdale. A small entry of store bulls topped at £740 for Aberdeen Angus from Messrs WA Hodgson, Whelpside.
A low entry of cast cows, especially after several weeks of tremendous trades, were every bit as dear as recent weeks once again averaging 111p/kg. A top price of 144.5p/kg was twice achieved for cast cows firstly for a Belgian Blue from J & DA Dickinson, Springfield and then for a Stabiliser from A Dixon & Son, Kit Cragg. Top price per head was £1003.47 for a Saler x cow from TA & J Dixon, Yoad Pot. A smaller than normal entry of over thirty month heifers averaged an excellent 139.5p/kg, topping at 147.5p/kg for a Simmental from KG & LM park, Low Fell End. Once again calves were keenly competed for with BB bulls selling to £380 from JB & JB Lawson, Bank End with others at £350 & £315. Heifers sold to £220 on two occasions for Limousin x and British Blue x from R Gregory, Coverdales. Plenty of buyers present for Black & Whites averaging £51, many more needed to meet this strong buyer demand.
