Weekly Sale of Rearing Calves

The weekly sale of Calves had a smaller entry than the previous week but a strong trade from start to finish with the majority being black and white. A lot more calves could have easily been sold this week to vendors advantage especially beef calves. The sale topper was a 14 day old Charolais bull calf selling to £460 from R Lawson & Son of Deerslet Farm. British Blue bulls at a month old sold to £390 and £370 from B Mallinson & Son of Ravens Lodge. An entry of mainly young Black and Whites topped at £130 for a six week old from RG & J Clark of Far Audlands with other better types of rearers selling in excess of £100 with rearing calves averaging £87.
