Calves and Stirks
The weekly sale of calves and stirks at J36 Rural Auction centre had a reduced entry of 38 forward, with many vendors and buyers absent today as they are busy lambing. The reduction in the beef price and general reduced confidence in beef at the moment led to a slightly reduced trade. All types of calves were still eagerly enough sought after, with still plenty of buyers around the ring. Good beef bull calves sold to a top of £395 for British Blues from JW & TE Sharpe of Flodder Hall. British blues from WB Winder & Co made £380 and Limousin calves from Brian Wilson of Spout House made £375. Heifer calves twice topped at £370, firstly from JW & TE Sharpe of Flodder Hall with a British Blue and then a Limousin from Brian Wilson of Spout House. Strong beef calves, between 4 – 6 weeks, were still achieving £300 plus. Black and whites sold to a top of £150 for strong calves from HJ Robinson & Son of Elm Tree, with others making £140. Young British Friesian types sold to £95 and £80 from WB Winder & Co., with all Black and Whites forward averaging £71.82.
A small entry of stirks sold to £605 and £600 for seven month old British Blue steers from JR Armistead of Sedbergh, with all stirks forward achieving their value.
