Store Cattle
A very satisfying trade for store cattle at Lancaster with vendors was again going away pleased with there trade with a 100% clearance rate. A better entry of cattle this weeks in terms of quality with more cattle carrying flesh forward and many groups of cattle being inside for a week or more now looking far better for it. The trade topped at £1,420 for a pair of Limousin steers from Barlow Bros of Croston with plenty of short keep cattle selling in excess of £1,200. Younger longer keep cattle where a better trade today with buyers around the ring now knowing how much space they have in there sheds and looking to fill up.
