STORE CATTLE GO DEARER AS CONFIDENCE BUILDS

North West Auctions Lancaster Mart had a very successful sale last Friday with over 340 store cattle, almost 100 cast cows & OTM’s together with 25 calves and two pens of store hoggs. Store cattle were a marvellous trade with many vendors reporting an increased trade from a ring full of buyers. Indeed there were several new faces around the ring which all contributed to the trade. A top price of £1310 went to Robin Dodgson, Kilburn House for a smart pen of Charolais cattle. Heifers topped at £1140 to W J Etherington & Sons, Willow House for a pen of British Blues. Store bulls sold to £810 for a pair of Limousin bulls from PF Lee, Lower Swainshead.
Another strong entry of cast cows were also a dear trade averaging over 128p/kg with prices certainly being helped by a total of 14 bidders around the ring. Cast cows peaked at 184.5p/kg for a Limousin from Nether Hall Farms Ltd, Mansergh. With a top price per head of £1167.60 going to Messrs Jones, Sandvilla. Cast heifers topped at 179.5p/kg for a Simmental from MA & JA Winn, High Underbrow and £1097.13 for an Angus from JJ & J Towers, Low Stennerley. Steers peaked at 199.5p/kg an Angus from Mrs O Butler, Elm Bank and cast bulls sold to £1536.85 for a Limousin from Nether Hall Farms.

A reduced entry of rearing & feeding calves were mostly Black & White in breed with trade perhaps better than expected on the day. B&W’s topped at £225 to Drinkall Bros., Catshaw Hall. British Blue x Friesian heifers topped at £265 from JB & JB Lawson, Bank End. The same price was achieved for an Angus x bull from WN & D Smith & Sons, Cocker House.

A small entry of store lambs topped at £76 for a pen of Texels from GE & JA Hayhhurst, Brunstow.
