Store Cattle

There was 227 Store Cattle forward this week at Lancaster, despite 1 or 2 buyers missing, there was a strong ringside of bidders, with a large amount of vendors happy with their trade. Again, well fleshed cattle sold to an advantage. Topping the market today was a Hereford bullock at £1320 from JS Clark & son, Godson House Farm, with quite a lot of cattle over
the £1200 mark.

Topping the heifer trade was a pair of Angus Heifers at £1140 consigned from AJ & D Knowles, Windy Hill Farm.
