Store Cattle - report by Auctioneer, Matthew Probert

The fortnightly sale of Store Cattle attracted a strong ringside of farmer and dealer buyers, all keen to purchase stock for both feeding and grazing. Yearling cattle saw the strongest competition with Limousin x steers to £825 from D J & E A Park, Crook and a pen of 10 month of Charolais bullocks to £805 from C P Bateman, Docker. All steers averaged £655. Heifers topped at £775 for Limousin x from J D, EM & J A Atkinson, Skelsmergh with others at £725 from R R & J Knowles, Docker. Only a few bulls this sale, topping at £630 for young Limousin x again from Messrs Atkinson, Skelsmergh.
