Posted Friday, 05 June 2015, 11.37am

Cast/OTM Cattle

Following the previous week’s large numbers of cattle forward and the better weather this week led to a reduced number of cattle forward as 49 passed through the ring. Cast steers sold to a top of 201.5ppk from A & E Clarkson of Thurnham with an Angus with others selling around 190ppk. Well fleshed beef cows sold in the early 150ppk topping at 154.5ppk from JE Bracken of New House Farm with a nine year old Limousin. Better types of OTM Black and white cows sold to 139.5ppk from R & A Jolleys of Marlholes with other better types easily selling in the 130’s. Black and whites averaged 116ppk with all cattle in the OTM ring selling to an average of 120ppk.

Store Cattle

A good trade throughout today with all vendors going away well satisfied with their trade with twice as many cattle could easily have been sold today at Lancaster to vendor’s advantage. In keeping with recent trends, younger and grazing sell extremely well. The trade for older and cattle nearing finished was noticeable stronger today plenty of steers and heifers selling in excess of £1,200 with steers topping at £1320 from J Bargh of Old Woodhouse with a Limousin as a Quartet of heifers sold to £1240 from EJ Ward & Sons of Intack Farm.

Rearing Calves & Stirks

A smaller entry of calves this morning with farmers making the most of the better weather, however those who found time were met by a very strong trade throughout with buyers keen to secure numbers. Blue bulls sold to a top of £398 from WD & RD Walmsley of Cockerham, with blue heifers to £350 from the same home and RT Halhead and Son. Black and white calves once again above and beyond vendors expectations, topping at £182 for an 8 week old from TD & V Whitaker, Forton. Best sorts in excess of £135, with younger sorts £58-£75.
