Lancaster Friday
Cast/OTM Cattle
An entry of 63 OTM cattle forward sold to an overall average of 118ppk. The OTM trade continue to be every bit as dear at Lancaster with vendors and potential vendors strongly advised not to pass Lancaster with a strong crowd of buyers around the ring. Cull cows sold to a top price of 169ppk or £1354 for a five year old British Blue cow from Philip Halhead on behalf of Norbreck Genetics. Well fleshed beef cows sold between the mid and late 140ppk. Black and White cows topped at 141.5ppk from Gary Atkinson of Cantsfield with other fleshed cows in the 130’s pence per kilo. Black and whites sold to an overall average of 109ppk.
Store Cattle
A plainer entry of store cattle forward in the market with more Holstein steers and a lot of dairy bred cattle. As seen in many store cattle markets up and down the country this week the trade has slightly eased with many finishers slightly cautious over the recent drop in prime cattle although long keep suckler bred cattle sold to a strong trade with people beginning to look for summering cattle. Trade topped at £1350 for Angus steers from SJ Brass of Ingleton with Limousin steers selling to £1330 from BN Greenwood. Heifers sold to a top price of £1290 for a 23 month old Limousin from RA Caton of Low House.
Calves & Stirks
A disappointing entry of calves and stirks at Lancaster with buyers leaving short of requirements. Top price came from David & Eileen Wallbank with an Angus Bull selling to £305. Stirks to £510 for Angus Heifers from B Webber, Wigan. Many more calves needed to meet buyers requirements.
