Kendal Second Suckled Calf Sale

NWA held its second show and sale of suckled calves this week, in conjunction with the fortnightly sale of store cattle. Buyers were attracted from as far a field as West Wales, with 46 purchasers buying cattle, others were unable to make a purchase.

Judging the show was Mr M Waller, Lupton who placed a smart Blonde X steer from TW & C Shepherd top of the podium which later went home with F & B Smith for a sealing bid of £875.

Heifers sold to £850, Blonde X again from the Shepherd consignment selling to MG Thompson.

Quality cattle continue to sell to the recent high prices with steers regularly £580/£680 with 124 averaging £641. Heifers regularly £490/£570 with 116 averaging £536. Young bulls sold to £830 for Lim x from D & J & Freeman.

Averages were very pleasing considering that some cattle had been affected be recent weather conditions and were looking smaller and slightly weather beaten. Although vendors would leave the market well pleased with the days trade.

Store cattle sold to £890 for Lim steers from MJ Cleasby, HF steers to £800 from Coward Bros.

Rearing calves sold to £180 for beef bred bulls from JG & BJ Escolme with Shorthorns to £72 from WH & K Robinson and HF to £42 from R & J Dodgson. Buyers for heifer calves left the market without filling their demands as numbers were short.

OTM/Cast Cows sold to 135p/kg for Lim x from B & HM Wilson and AAx from C Hoggarth & Son. Top price per head reached £972 from B & HM Wilson. All cows sold averaged 98p/kg for a show of cattle coming predominantly from the parlour.
