SUCKLED CALVES

The pre sale show saw an excellent run of suckler calves put before our judge Mr Ian Wainwright, Scotland who we thank for his time and expertise. After much time and deliberation, he awarded the championship rosette to the first prize Limousin bullock consigned by Messrs Hodgson, High Borrans. This eight-month-old Limousin bullock flew away selling at £1100 to the judge. The reserve champion in the pre-sale show was awarded to the first prize Limousin heifer from CD Slinger & JL Eaton, Middleton. This lovely lady attracted keen interest and achieved a final bid of £1200 and going on for breeding. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our pre-sale sponsor APSV - trucks, plant and spiciest vehicle sales. The suckler calf sale was met with a full ring side of buyers with 56 accounts purchasing, who were all keen to purchase with many on lookers calling the trade more fierce than the first sale.
Out side the show quality calves were once again keenly bid for with British Blue bullocks selling to £1220 from M&D Hatton, Broughton in Furness. Four bullocks achieved the £1100 mark, firstly a British Blue from TW Gorst, then a Charollais from WA Atkinson and Limousin bullocks from both GE&JA Hayhurst and Messrs Hodgson. Well grown smart suckler bullocks regularly sold at the £950-£1000 mark.
The best heifers would be the trade of the day, with numerous buyers round the ring keen to secure stock suitable for future breeding and the show ring. Topping the heifer trade today was T Ayrton & Son with a smart Limousin heifer which went on to sell for £1160. A generally younger show of heifers were forward, being 5-7 month old with the best selling at £880-£950. With the medium sorts £720-£800.
