Store Cattle
With a trade like the one at Lancaster vendors are strongly advised to forward their cattle to Lancaster over the coming weeks to a ring full of buyers looking to purchase all types of cattle. Another strong trade throughout with all vendors leaving with a smile on their faces. British blue steers sold to a top of £1370 from JM & AG Swarbrick of Bensons Farm. Heifers sold to a top price of £1280 from ME & J Swarbrick of Bridge Farm. Native bred cattle were in short supply today with many buyers needing more to fill their requirements. Angus steers from DW & NM Alderson of High Green sold to £1180. Young grazing cattle continue to be a good trade for both beef and dairy bred cattle.

More calves needed to meet buyer’s requirements. A Limousin Bull from JH Towers & Son, Tunstall topped the sale, realising £425. A nice run of Herefords topped at £420 twice at 12weeks. Younger Black and White calves dearer on the week, £50-£70 with older sorts a fraction easier, topping at £100.
