Store Cattle

There was another good entry of 300 store cattle at Lancaster. Well-fleshed short keep cattle continue to be in strong demand at Lancaster and eagerly bid for with a pen of four Angus bullocks from T & M Halhead of Priest Hutton selling for £1570.

OTM Cattle

A smaller entry of just 73 cast and OTM cattle in today, with many vendors cautious of selling this today with the bank holiday weekend. There was an overall market average of 132p/kg with black and white cows selling to an average of 117p/kg or £745. There was numerous cattle in the cast end adding up to over £1000 with cast black and white heifers topping at £1338 from GA & A Atkinson of Cantsfield and cows topping at £1156 from GB & EA Metcalfe of Mansergh.

Calves and Stirks

The monthly sale of stirks had a smaller entry forward this month with an entry of 70 forward. The trade was slightly mixed with well-fleshed and good types of cattle continuing to be easy to sell and others slightly harder work with buyers not wanting to purchase cattle to lie in quite yet, making it an even longer winter. MJ & K Ayrton of Thurham sold strong Angus bullocks to £845, and Shorthorns to £590 from J & DE Mitchell & Son of Cabus. Seven month old Simmental steers and heifers to £580 from JS Taylor of Lancaster with J & DE Mitchell & Son selling Hereford heifers to £575. Yearling British Friesian bullocks sold to £550 and £525 from S Kellet & Sons of Pilling Hall. Three month old Montbeliarde bulls sold to £380 and £420 from JK & B Birkett and Son of White Lund with black and whites the same age selling to £300 from DJ Townley of Ashton. A very small entry of calves sold to continued strong trade with British Blues topping at £405 from T & CM Kelsall of Chipping with weaned black and whites from the same home selling to £260.
