Second quality calves were slightly harder to place this week. Good quality black and whites sold to over £100, topping at £150 J Scott & Co, Middle Birkby Farm. Young rearing black and white calves sold to £125 from A Pickthall, The Borrans, with many young black and white calves selling between £50 and £70.

Store Cattle

The autumn show and sale of 450 Store Cattle attracted buyers from throughout the northern counties and midlands, who were all keen to procure stock from noted area. The pre-sale show was judged by Mr F Towers, who had an outstanding show cattle put before him in all classes. The champion rosette, after much deliberation, was awarded to the first prize, 16 month old, British Blue Bullock from MA & JA Winn, High Underbrow, which later sold for day’s top price of £1270, to the judge. Today’s reserve champion was the first Prize, 14 month old, British Blue Heifer, also from MA & JA Winn, which sold for £1200. All vendors must be complimented on the quality of cattle forward at the sale today.
Strong Continental Cattle were regularly selling between £1150 and £1270, with best yearling types of cattle selling between £980 and £1120. A run of 20 14-18 month old Limousin Bullocks from TA Chapman & Son, Lane Head Farm, topped at £1260, with four pens over the £1200 mark.

A few bulls forward today, sold to £1240 for a 12 month old Limousin from DP Escolme, Far Audlands.

Cast Cows & OTM Cattle

A bumper entry of cast cows saw an entry of 82 forward, with beef cows in the strongest demand and dairy bred cows slightly easier this week as there was a lot of parlour cows in the market. Topping the day’s trade was a British Blue Cow from GH Jones, Far Sawrey selling for 159.5p/kg, top price per head was achieved by a Hereford Cow from AW Irvine, Tock Howe Farm selling for £1116.29.
