MARVELLOUS TRADE IN ALL THREE RINGS AT LANCASTER

North West Auctions Lancaster held their weekly Friday sale of store and breeding stock together with cast cows.  

The day began with an increased entry of cast cows which were good to sell all day averaging 123.5p/kg for all breeds and grades.  Top price of 171.5p/kg went to AV Bailey, Crook-o-Lune Farm for a Blonde x cow.  Cows also sold to £1020 to L & PA Haygarth, Kelleth Rigg.   Cast heifers averaged 158p/kg selling to 174.5p/kg to G Johnson, Jubilee Farm for a Belgian Blue.  Cast Steers sold to 159.5p/kg (£1004) for a Limousin from TJ Robinson, Rowell Farm.   A handful of cows with calves at foot met much interest to top at £1200 for a Continental heifer with heifer calf at foot from Tony Birkett, Hall Croft Barn.  

A small but seasonal entry of store cattle saw a lot of strong and good quality cattle through the ring.  Store bullocks averaged an amazing £838 topping at £1090 for a pen of Belgian Blues from SJ Brass, Nutgill.  Store heifers averaged £767 with a top of £1060 to G Johnson, Jubilee Farm a Belgian Blue heifer.  Strong cattle were rather dearer than recent sales with a full ring of buyers despite the relatively low numbers on the catalogue.  

Earlier in the day a small entry of rearing calves were as dear as they have been for a while with both beef bred and dairy bred calves in great demand.  A top price of £330 went to TE Kidd, Booth Hall for a quality young Limousin heifer calf.  

The early afternoon sale of ewes with lambs at foot continues to thrive although there was a reduced number through the ring this week.  Trade was very pleasing on the day with an overall average of £190 per outfit.  Top price of £215 went to ST Birkett, Hall Croft Barn for his third pen of Texel x hoggs with lambs at Foot.
