Store Cattle

The declining deadweight prices are currently having a knock on effect in the live ring as buyers sheds are full and finished cattle are struggling to get cashed in. Topping the sale was a pair of Blue Bullocks from R Capstick, Fell End. Angus cattle sold to £1210 for bullocks from D & N Davis, Nateby. Heifers to £1140 for a British Blue from SJ Brass, Ingleton. Friesian cattle to £1080, again from D & N Davis. Younger summering cattle sold well, with 8 month Charolais from FK & F Woodhouse, Scorton realising £920.

Cast Cows

Not quite as many forward this week with 80 going through the ring, selling to a good trade throughout. Top gross came from RH & C Ayrton, Abbeystead with a Limousin Cow realising a total of £1125. Dairy cows sold to 129.5ppk from JM & A Wallbank, Wray and Strickland Hill Farming, Witherslack. Dry cows and feeding cows will be wanted next week for the Bank Holiday sale.


A poor show numbers wise matched with a ringside of active buyers led to a fast trade for all. Blues sold to £360 for an 8week heifer from TD & V Whitaker, Winmarleigh. Angus bulls sold to £325 from JM & MH France & Son, Littledale. Montbelliardes to £230 from JR Pye, Stalmine and £220 from JK Birkett, Morecambe. No black and white calves forward to mention, more needed to fill buyers requirements.
