Calves & Weanlings
The weekly sale of calves at Lancaster had an entry of 55 forward with a busy ringside of buyers and onlookers throughout the sale with fresh bidder in attendance. The trade does remain very similar with the rearing costs and weather. A couple of nice runs of weanlings met very good demand and seem to be what the buyers are currently looking to purchase. The consignment from JR Newsham & son, Conder Green lead the way selling to £460, £430 and £390 with Montbeliarde bulls followed by £385 with Flekvieh bulls whom also sold Friesian bulls to £335.

Milk calves saw British Blue bulls sold to a top of £345 for a British Blue bull from J Bargh and Son, Overton with plenty more selling in the early two hundreds. Dairy bull calves peaked at £100 for a Fleckvieh from JR Newsham & Son, Conder Green.

Store Cattle
An increased entry of store cattle brought out an increased ring side of fresh and returning buyers. A mixed show of store cattle in terms of quality saw short keep cattle continue to be a strong trade with longer term and weathered cattle selling in line with other centres. Charolais bullocks led the way at Lancaster selling to £1540 from RH Dodgson, Burton in Lonsdale. This was followed by £1500 for a Limousin bullock from R&A Easterby, Westhouse.
