Champion Sells to £1370

The opening sale of store cattle for 2020 saw a full crowd of eager buyers in attendance all keen to secure stock. Buyers were in attendance from throughout the Northern Counties, Midlands, Wales & Scotland.

A feature of today’s sale was the pre-sale show which was kindly and ably judged by Mr Andrew Dyson, Ripon who had an outstanding entry of cattle presented before him in the two show classes.

The Championship rosette was awarded to an 18 month old British Blue x steer from MJ & JA Winn, Burneside which was also the recipient of the Janet Gorst Perpetual Challenge Trophy. This steer later sold for the day’s top price of £1370. The Reserve Champion was a Limousin x heifer again from MJ & JA Winn, which sold for £1190.

A fast trade was experienced throughout the sale with all classes and types of cattle keenly competed for. Well grown steers were regularly £1100 - £1250 with yearlings £850 - £1050 for all breeds. Heifers sold to £1220 with the stronger end generally £900 - £1120 and yearlings £840 - £920.
