Lancaster Livestock Auction: Lancaster Calves, OTM Cattle and Store Cattle - Friday 30 April 2021

Calves and Stirks


Lancasters weekly sale of calves had an entry of 107 forward, with as many as any other auction market in the area and more than most! The trade was as sharp as seen for some time in which more could have easily been sold, to the sellers’ advantage. British Blue bull weanlings sold to £590 and £570 from G & ME Woodhouse & Son, Ellel. Other noted prices for British Blue weanlings were £540 from JT & B Fox, Quernmore. Other weanlings saw Limousins bulls sell to £550 and £540 from B&MJ Nelson & Son, Heversham with Limousin heifers from the same home to £530.

Lancasters monthly sale of stirks continues to grow from strength to strength, with a strong entry of 207 forward. Good grazing type bullocks met strong demand in which more could have easily been sold. With the trade very strong for well done 5-to-6-month-old stirks. There was a large number of heifers in the market today with buyers being slightly more selective on yearling softer heifers but still looking well sold. There was not as many buyers forward as some times seen at Lancaster for the stirk sales, with the grass being slow to grow but we have many buyers in waiting and once the grass starts to grow, they will be back ring side. So do not hesitate to enter for the next sale.
