J36 Crooklands Livestock Auction: Store Cattle Thursday 26th July

The fortnightly sale at NWA J36 saw an entry of 172 head forward across all sections with a 100% clearance rate achieved

Calves

A bumper entry of 101 calves today from far and wide with all selling to full value. As with all other stock sales buyers are now showing more caution when purchasing replacement stock, keeping a close eye on the feed stocks available.

In general, the calves would be younger today than at recent sales. Top price was £375 for a British Blue bull from JAH Walton & Son with younger calves £220 to £260. Native bulls in abundance with Aberdeen Angus’ to £285 from ME Wannop & Sons Ltd, and Herefords to £275 from V & EJ Chadwick & Sons, heifers sold to £290 again for British Blues from JA H Walton & Son with others generally £180 to £250.
Dairy bulls saw a run of Montbeliarde Bulls regularly achieve £125 to £150 from Colby Farms Ltd and Fleckviehs to £78. Holstein bulls were a nice trade with the strongest sorts £120 to £160 from RF & CE Hodgson, nice rearers were selling £65 - £80, mediums £45 - £60 with only the smallest less.

Keep these numbers coming.

Cast Cows

The sale of Cast Cows saw a much plainer entry of predominantly dairy cows forward which was reflected in the overall market average of 86p/kg.

Well-fleshed cows were on short supply with Limousins selling to 124.5p/kg from J & J Postlewaite and Friesians to 117.5p/kg from MD Close & Son, which was also top prized per head achieving £896. Leaner cows generally 85-95p/kg dependant on bread and weight.

Store Cattle

Store cattle saw a seasonal entry forward with buyer’s ringside for all types, but perhaps showing caution due to the weather and feed supplies.

Aberdeen Angus heifers sold to £860 from G Cuthbertson with others to £850 from R Cowin & Sons. A larger number of yearling heifers in today’s sale were generally selling £620 to £690 with steers a similar price. A pair of suckler bulls sold at £695 being Limousins.
