Hat trick of cows and calves sell for £2200

NWA Kendal held its annual Beef Breeding sale with buyers present from throughout the northern countries and as far away as Staffordshire and Derbyshire.

A feature of this sale is the annual production sale of Stabiliser cross cows on behalf of 3 local farms. £1550 was the top price from the production sale achieved several times by A Dixon & Son, Kit Cragg, for third calved cows with month old Charolais cross calves at foot. Stabiliser cows with Stabiliser calves sold to £1480 with three quarter bred stabiliser cows with bull calves to £1450 from M G & M H Capstick, Park House.

The herd dispersal of Lim cross cows on behalf of M Robinson Mountain View saw prices peak at £1950 from a Lim cow with Heifer calf purchased by JA & J Harper, Sedbergh. Others were to £1850 and £1820 with bulling heifers to £1020.

A part herd dispersal on behalf of D & J & A Freeman saw pedigree third calved Limousin cows with heifer calves sell to £2200 with fourth calvers £2050 and heifers £1950.

A large crowd of buyers saw commercial cattle keenly competed for with all cattle sold to prices in line with other centres.

£2200 was achieved for a Limousin Heifer and bull calf from E J Hodgson & Son and later achieved by P J & B Airey with a BBx heifer with heifer calf. Older cows sold to £1400 from

I & A J Armer, with cows with younger calves harder to place. In calf heifer sold to £1100 (x3) for BB x from T L B & J Knowles with Limousin x to £1020 from JA Airey.
