Lancaster Livestock Auction: Store Cattle Friday 29th September

Store Cattle

The weekly sale of Store Cattle saw 422 forward for the Annual Show and Sale of Heifers. The sale saw stronger and well-fleshed cattle selling to the usual premium with smaller and leaner cattle being harder to place.
This morning’s show of pens of 4 Continental Heifers was kindly judged by Mr D Prickett of Kendal.

First place was awarded to A & L Huddleston of Wray for a pen of British Blue and Limousin Heifers. Second and Third place both went to D & D Collins of Parbold for pens of Blonde and Limousin Heifers.
Topping today’s trade was an Aberdeen Angus Bullock from JS Clark & Son of Catforth selling to £1390. Continental Cattle sold to a top of £1300 for a Simmental Bullock from TA Teasdale of Newton in Cartmel.
Heifers sold to a top of £1260 for an Aberdeen Angus Heifer from GR & A Foy of Conder Green.

Cast Cows

Cast Cows saw another good entry of 120 forward with all forward averaging 111.67p/kg. Plainer cows were dearer on the week with meaty cattle being very similar on the week.

Cast Cows sold to 164p/kg for a British Blue from JG & PH Thompson of Selside who also made the top price per head today selling a Limousin to £1128.68.

Cast Heifers sold to 189.5p/kg for an Aberdeen Angus from Wallbank Farms of Over Wyresdale who also sold Aberdeen Angus Cast Steers to 194.5p/kg.

Calves and Stirks

The monthly sale of Stirks had entry of 80 forward for the sale. Buyers were slightly cautious today due to the long winter ahead and sheds are quickly becoming full with cattle being led in earlier than normal due to the bad weather conditions we are experiencing at the moment.

The trade topped at £670 for nine month old Aberdeen Angus Bullocks from S Kellet & Sons of Pilling with the same age Angus Bullocks from M & E Forshaw and Son selling to £630 and Hereford Bullocks from the same good home selling to £615.

Plenty of Bullocks around the 8-10months old mark were selling between £520 and £570.

Black and White Bullocks sold to £515 from S Kellet & Sons of Pilling.

A strong Calf trade was enjoyed throughout the sale with British Blue Bulls topping at £390 from JM & MH France & Son of Littledale with other British Blues selling to £350 from JR Pye of Poulton le Flyde. As always, a good trade for Native Calves was seen at Lancaster with Aberdeen Angus Bulls topping at £315 from the Cornthwaites of Moors Farm and Herefords selling to £280 from FW Rhodes and Son of Barrow Greaves.
Rearing Black and White Bull Calves were a sharper trade this week with better types regularly over the £100 mark, topping at £142 from Drinkall Bros of Catshaw Hall Farm.
