A lovely sunny spring day ensured a fantastic atmosphere at NWA Lancaster which enjoyed a very busy day. A mixed bag of store cattle saw plenty of trade for continental and stronger types of cattle. Black and whites were a shade easier on last weeks trade. A top price of £1490 went to Messrs Rosall, Abrahams Farm for a smart pen of British Blue Bullocks. Heifers sold to a top of £1300 for smart Hereford X Cattle from Messrs Mason, Spital Farm.

In the cow ring a good entry of 74 head averaged an excellent 135.38p/kg for all grades. Cows topped at 189.50p/kg for a young Friesian from Messrs Mackereth, Whittington. Cows also sold to £1386 from P & M Crackles, Mill Farm again for a Friesian. OTM Heifers sold to 199.5p/kg to R Farnworth, Aspull for an Angus. OTM steers topped at 219.5p/kg for a Charolais from R A Gibbons of Flookbourgh. All grades were good to sell.

A reduced entry of 39 calves left buyers short of cattle. Everything sold well, topping at £370 for continental bull calves from JB & JB Lawson, Bank End. Heifer Calves sold to £325 for a continental heifer.

The best show of Ewes with lamb at foot so far this season topped at £168 from John Hughes, Askew Hill. There were more buyers round the ring helped no doubt by the sunshine.
