J36 Crooklands Livestock Auction: Store Cattle Thursday 9th August

Store Cattle & Beef Breeding Cattle

There was a handful of beef breeding and store cattle forward for the sale today. Beef breeding cattle were hard to place with many potential buyers still cautious of the grass and forage situation. Limousin heifers with Limousin bull calves at foot sold to a top of £1080 from R Robinson of Old Hutton.

There was a sticky trade for younger store cattle, topping at £730 and £725 from SW Atkinson and Son of Crook selling Simmental store cattle.


A similar number of calves and stirks forward for the sale where there was, once again, a very buoyant trade for black and white calves and more are required to fulfil buyer’s requirements. The entry was mainly made up of younger black and whites selling to a top of £92 HJ Robinson and Son of Preston Patrick at just under a month old. Plenty of nice young rearing calves selling between £70 and £80. Beef calves saw British Blue heifers sell to £320 and £300 from JW & D Robinson of Nook.

A quantity of black and white bull stirks on offer sold to a top of £240 and regularly selling around the £200 mark.
