Weekly Sale of Calves

The weekly sale of Calves continues to have a strong trade with vendors once again pleased with their trade. As seen throughout the North West, beef calves are eagerly sought after with one month old good British Blue bulls selling to £465 and £410 from A & E Barnes of Brackenfold and Simmental Bulls from R & EA Gardner of Barrowfield selling to £440. Heifers achieved a top of £380 for a one month old British Blue from David Galbraith of Sunny Bank. A consignment of Limousin calves from the Cornthwaite Family of Langley Park of Millom attracted plenty of attention selling to £345 for both heifers and bulls. Strong black and white bull calves now demanding a premium as 6 week old calves sold to £215 from TK Robinson & Sons of Greaves Farm with other stronger types easily selling at £150 and younger rearing types selling for between £50 and £80. All Black and White calves averaged £133.

Once again more calves could have easily been sold with plenty of buyers at the ringside and a few new buyers present as well. Vendors and potential new vendors are strongly advised to forward calves to J36 to gain the full potential for their calves.
