Overall a younger show of calves were sold with the majority being only 6 months of age but all sold to a very strong trade with a strong demand for Charolais bred cattle being most noticeable.

A nice show of store cattle were also forward with cattle topping at £1160 a head for Angus bullocks from M Allen, Yealand.

A large entry of 96 cast cows were forward to a full ringside with twelve active buyers which ensured all classes met a strong trade. Richard and Janet Gorst of Killington sold a British Blue cow to 217.5p/kg. A good show of well finished cows and over age heifers were very easily sold whilst out of parlour Black & White cows were a little harder to cash. Clean cattle topped at 214.5p/kg for a Limousin bullock from AM Jennings & Son.

Another strong entry of rearing calves & stirks saw an improved trade for all types. Beef calves sold to £380 for BRB x from JW & D Robinson & Sons with others £350. Heifers fell short of buyers requirements with young Limousin x £222 from MH & AR Robinson. Dairy bulls sold to £225 for best reared types from Messrs Robson and R & J Dodgson. Medium rearers £90-£130 with smaller calves £40-£60. Stirks sold to £375 for H/F steers with H/F bulls to £420.

Dairy Cattle – Buyers left today short of cattle with a competitive ringside easily capable of 10-15 each sale. A new calved cow from R & J Dodgson led the way selling for a final bid of £1800.
