OTM Cattle

It was great to have over 160 Cast Cows at Lancaster today, with there being a very back end show of cattle as many people start to off load cows in preparation for lining time. Well-fleshed cows continue to be good to sell, with a large number of leaner cows on the market today leading to an overall slightly less market average of 107p/kg. Lancaster continues to have a good strong ring of buyers for OT M Heifers and Steers with these topping at 184.5p/kg from R Capstick & Son, Ingleton with a British Blue Heifer, others sold between 160p/kg and 170p/kg. Black and whites sold to a top of 159.5p/kg from W Garnett & Son, Milnthorpe. Beef cows topped 147.5p/kg for British Blue from GR & A Foy, Conder Green.
