Lancaster Livestock Auction: Lancaster Calves, OTM & Store Cattle - Friday 4th December 2020

Calves and Weanlings

Lancaster had a smaller entry of calves forward this week as many consignors held off for the annual Christmas show and sale next week, with not as many quality calves on offer and in general a younger selection forward.
The market was topped by a British Blue weanling bull from Drinkall Bros, Over Wyresdale selling to £455. The consignment of British Blue bull calves from J & G Thornley, Roseacre sold to £430, £420 and £410 with heifers from the same home selling to £385 and £370. The consignment of British Blue bull calves from T & CM Kelsall and Sons, Chipping topped at £395. Plenty of stronger Continental calves selling in excess of the three hundred pound mark. All British Blue bulls averaged £317.

Native calves sold to £380 for Angus bulls from AJ & AJ Gibbons, St Michaels on Wyre with others from J & G Thornley, Roseacre selling to £360. A lot of strong quality native heifer calves met plenty of demand selling to a top of £350 for Welsh Black and £300 for Herefords from AJ & AJ Gibbons, St Michaels on Wyre. Angus heifers peaked at £330 from J & G Thornley, Roseacre.
