Store Cattle

Store cattle sold to a strong trade throughout with all classes of cattle in slightly stronger demand as numbers begin to lift with 274 sold. The larger better sorts of steers more sought after as Charolais steers from J & BA Kellet of Clarksons Farm sold to £1390 with other good Charolais steers from the same home selling to £1320 and £1290 with other good Simmental steers from TE & A Galbraith of Crooklands Farm selling to £1280 for a trio. Angus steers sold to £1190 from J Redmayne of Cuerdale Hall Farm with a pen of four. A British Blue heifer from T & L Kirkham of Ingrave Farm topped the heifers selling to £1240.

Farm assured cattle sold to a premium today with many buyers requesting that cattle is farm assured and we are strongly advising vendors to get farm assured to maximize the price achieved for their cattle.

Congratulations to Stuart Close of Docker Hall Farm for winning the prize draw of a £15 lunch voucher for lotting four or more cattle together.

Calves sold to a top price of £262 for a three week old Limousin Bull calf from J Bargh & Son of North Farm with Angus Bull calves from David and Eileen Wallbank of Tills Farm selling an Angus Bull calf to £260. A large proportion of calves forward today being black and white bull calves, the trade for black and whites slightly tougher with the current beef prices saw black and white calves from the Wallbanks of Tills Farm selling to £102.
