The weekly sale of claves and stirks had in excess of 50 forward this week. It was good to have more beef calves in the market with once again a busy ring of buyers looking to purchase both beef and black and white calves. A consignment of British Blue bulls from JW & TE Sharpe of Flodder Hall sold to £450 twice. A consignment of British Blue heifers from VE & J Chadwick of Sowerby Lodge sold to £380 and £370 defiantly worth travelling all this way to sell calves. Plenty of beef calves over that month of age selling easily in excess of £300. Once again a very young entry of black and white calves with very few over a month old. They sold to £90 from JW & TE Sharpe of Flodder Hall with plenty two to three week old calves around £50.

An entry of just black and white stirks today saw three month old black and whites sell to £285 and £235 from DS & H Fell of Millom.
