Lancaster Livestock Auction: Store Cattle - Friday 30th August

Store Cattle

The Store Cattle trade remains very similar with little movement in the current deadweight cattle price. Angus bullocks lead the way this week selling to £1180 from J & CG Redmayne of Samlesbury with others selling to £1160 from JD & GM Bracken of Catterall. Charolais bullocks topped at £1150 from TJ Robinson of Milnthorpe with Limousin bullocks to £1140 from TE, JS & SA Carruthers of Kendal. The heifer trade was topped at £1100 for Angus’ from SJ Brass of Ingleton. Dairy bullcoks topped at £1080 for Montbeliarde from RH Dodgson of Burton in Lonsdale.

OTM Cattle

There was a smaller entry of Cast Cows forward with 95 that saw fit cows selling to a sharper trade and other types selling to a very similar trade to the previous weeks. An overall market average this week of 112p/kg was achieved for all cattle forward. Leading the way was a British Blue OTM steer from A & L Huddleston of Wray selling to 169.5p/kg with Montbeliarde heifers selling to 151.5p/kg from A & FM Bolland of Ellel. Limousin cows topped at 147.5p/kg twice for Limousins from MA & JA Winn of Burneside and NJ & L Allan of Killington. Better meated dairy cows regularly sold in excess of the 130p/kg mark. Top price per head was a Limousin bull from L Atkinson of New Hutton selling to £1179. Dairy cows sold to £1065 for Montbeliardes from A & FM Bolland of Ellel with Friesians selling to £1024 from G & ME Woodhouse and Son of Ellel.

Calves and Stirks

The monthly sale of Stirks at Lancaster followed by Calves attracted an entry of 179 forward, the Stirk trade was mixed with well grown hardened off stirks, that had been grazing, in strong demand and younger and softer types harder to place. Black and whites saw good quality types in plenty of demand. Leading the way was yearling British Blue steers selling to £755 and £700 from J Miller of Garstang, who also sold Angus steers to £700 with Angus steers selling to a top of £720. Limousin bullocks topped at £655 from R & J Parkinson of Preesall. Bulls toped at £640 for six-month-old Angus’ from JK & B Birkett and Son of Morecambe. The heifer trade was topped by J & G Thornley of Kirkham with British Blues at £575. Dairy bullocks saw Norwegian reds sell to a top of £450 from MD Close and Son of Arkholme with Black and White bulls selling to £405 from RE & P Miller of Barnacre.

The calf trade was slightly easier for calves reflecting in the easier trade for prime and forward stores. A consignment of calves from I & AJ Armer of Burneside saw Charolais heifers sell to £340 and £315 with Charolais bulls selling to £330. British Blue bull calves sold to £255 from Drinkall Bros of Over Wyresdale with black and white bull calves from the same home selling to £80.
