Store Cattle

The Store Cattle ring saw good quality cattle selling to a stronger trade and short in supply with all buyers very keen for cattle today. Plainer types slightly were harder to place.

Again, another headline top price at Lancaster with a British Blue Bullock selling to £1520 from J Bargh of Heaton with Oxcliffe. Native Cattle good to sell at Lancaster with Aberdeen Angus Bullocks selling to £1490 from JA & LR Wilson of Millom. A pen of 4 Aberdeen Angus Bullocks from O Butler of Kirkham sold to £1440. Heifers today topped at £1340 from JA & LR Wilson of Millom with a Simmental. Plenty of cattle easily selling to excess of £1200.

There was certainly more demand for well fleshed heavy Black and White Bullocks selling to a top of £1250 for a pen of 3 from S Kellet & Son of Pilling.

OTM Cattle

The Weekly sale of Cast Cows had a smaller entry of 46 forward due to the bank holiday weekend and many people busy with silage.

The trade remains very strong with vendor urged to take advantage of this and sell live weight.

Young Limousin Cows topped the trade at 2.19p/kg or £1248 from JD & EM JA Atkinson of Skelsmergh. An overall market average of 131p/kg was achieved. Black and Whites sold to a top of 164p/kg with the best types of ows around the 140p/kg and overall all Black and Whites averaging 123p/kg.


The monthly stirk sale had a smaller entry this month selling to a continued strong trade in which more could have easily been sold as summer is here and the grass is growing well. Charolais suckler bred bullocks from DC miller of Cobble Hey sold to £825 and £780 with heifers from the same home selling to £690. A consignment from Robert Mason of Out Rawcliffe saw British Blue and Angus steers sell £750 at 10 month old with Angus heifers from the same home selling to £625. Montbeliarde steers sold to £590 from JR Pye of Stalmine with Black and Whites topping at £470 from John Maxwell.

A shortage of beef bull calves forward today we more could have easily been sold to the advantage of vendors.
