CAST COW TRADE IMPROVES AGAIN AT KENDAL

North West Auctions Kendal Mart had forward a reduced entry of store cattle and cast cows on Thursday.

The sale began with a mixed quality entry of cast cows which did very well to average 107.5p/kg. Best meated cows were in much demand selling at their dearest level yet. Cows sold to a top of 140.5p/kg to J H Barker, Stribers Farm for a Devon cow. Cows also sold to a top of £1012.10 to Messrs JD & M Beck, Town Foot for a Friesian cow. Cast heifers were also good to sell averaging over 130p/kg, topping at 136.5p/kg again to Messrs Beck, Town Foot.

In the store cattle ring a smaller than expected entry of cattle were sold to a strong ring of buyers. Trade proved to be better than expected especially for stronger cattle. Bullocks topped at £870 for a Limousin from JH Barker, Stribers Farm. Heifers sold to £805 from Mrs E Tuer, Common Farm again for a Limousin. A small entry of feeding bulls topped at £660 for Limousins from JB Dixon, Valley View.
