Lancaster Livestock Auction: Store Cattle Friday 20th October

Store Cattle

The weekly sale of Store Cattle at Lancaster saw another catalogued entry of over 400. This week’s trade saw meaty and quality type cattle sell to a sharper trade with all other cattle harder to place.

Native Cattle saw Hereford Bullocks sell to £1290 from A & E Clarkson and Son Ltd of Thurnham with Aberdeen Angus Bullocks sold to £1260 from JD & GM Bracken of Garstang.

Store Heifers sold to £1150 for a pair of Aberdeen Angus Heifers, again, from JD & GM Bracken.

Vendors are advised that the gates are open from 7 am and requested to get cattle forward as early as possible with fully completed paperwork to avoid queues.

OTM Cattle

A larger entry of Cast Cows forward this week with an entry of 124 forward. This week saw a mixed show of cows with Continental cows selling to a sharper trade and all others selling to a similar trade to the previous week. An overall market average of 111.49p/kg was achieved.

Calves & Stirks

The weekly sale of Calves saw a smaller entry forward this week. Good quality beef calves continue to be good to sell with young and plainer types harder to place.

Leading today’s Calf trade was a British Blue Bull Calf from Cornthwaite Moors Ltd of Poulton Le Fylde selling to £345.

Native Calves continue to sell well with Aberdeen Angus Bull Calves, again, from Cornthwaite Moors Ltd sell to £280. Hereford Heifer Calves sold to £310 from J & G Thornley of Poulton Le Fylde.

A run of British Blue Heifer Calves from Cornthwaite Moors sold to £290 with others at £260.

Best types of rearing calves were noticeably up on the week and desperately required next week to meet demand for new buyers looking to purchase fit rearing calves between 3 and 6 weeks old.

Friesian Bull Calves sold to £160 from J Bargh & Son of Heaton with Oxcliffe with others selling to £152 from Wallbank Farms of Over Wyresdale.

Just a dozen Stirks in today sold well considering the forage situation. Six month old Aberdeen Angus Steers sold to £450 from PS & H Eckersley of Preston.
