MARVELLOUS ENTRY OF FORWARD STORES AT LANCASTER

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

A tremendously strong entry of store cattle were a marvellous trade on the day.  Bullocks averaged £847 selling to a top of £1180 to TH Whitfield & Son, Longlands Farm for a tremendous Blonde bullock.  Heifers averaged £707 topping at £940 to H Gorst & Sons, Shaws for a pen of Limousin heifers.  

A similar entry of 70 cast cows & over thirty month cattle saw a much plainer show of cows forward and the overall average of 116p/kg was very tasty on the day.  A top price of 144.5p/kg went to PW & JM Norris & Son, Priory Farm for a tremendously fleshed Friesian cow.  Cows also topped at £1066 to JA Burrow, White Carr for a Limousin cow.  OTM heifers peaked at 154.5p/kg (£1038) for a British Blue from JJ & D Huddleston, Overhouses.  OTM Steers sold to 167.5p/kg (£1033) for a Limousin from PG Thornton, Cliftons Farm.  

A reduced entry of calves were a great trade on the day with buyers attending the market from far and wide.  A top price of £310 went to J & EV Thompson & Son, Hood Ridding Farm for a young Limousin bull calf and the same producers also topped the heifer trade at £290 for a Limousin calf.
