Store Cattle

The spring show and sale of yearling store cattle at Lancaster had a strong class of over ten cattle forward in front of the judge John Bargh. After much deliberation the first prized steer was awarded to a good Blonde from Stephen Hill of the Dell which later went out to sell for £1080 to the judge. The second prize rosette was awarded to Fred Woodhouse of Fell end with third being awarded to the Ayrton family of Ouzelthorn.

Yearling cattle and summering cattle where in strong demand and sold well today at Lancaster with plenty of buyers keen to purchase grazing cattle. Stronger cattle nearing finishing where harder to sell today with many meat firms dropping the price once again next week. The day’s top price came from J Robinson & Son, Green Farm for a big Limousin steer selling for £1340. Heifers sold to a top price of £1250 for a Hereford from I & ME Askew of Raw Head.

Next week spring show and sale of grazing cattle at Lancaster.

Congratulations to D & DW Prickett of Farleton House for winning the prize draw of a £15 lunch voucher for lotting four or more cattle together.
