Market Report – Wednesday 23rd January 2013

FORTNIGHTLY SALE OF YOUNG FEEDING BULLS, STORE BULLOCKS & HEIFERS, BREEDING CATTLE FORWARD: 600 HEAD OF CATTLE Comprising: 226 Young Feeding Bulls, 369 Bullocks & Heifers, 5 Breeding Cattle

CCM Auctions held their fortnightly cattle sale at Skipton Mart on Wednesday where the weather did not wreak too much havoc and 600 head of cattle out of a catalogue of 749 were forward for sale.

Young Bulls were again good to sell, premium bulls regular £1,100 plus. Younger bulls for farming were keenly sought. In the store cattle ring some runs of strong heifers were the highlight of the day, Messrs Mason of Low Hall showing their Annual consignment of 39 Charolais Heifers at this sale (20 months old) which topped at £1,440 and averaged a marvellous £1,204. Other stronger bullocks and heifers were keenly sought, whilst younger bullocks and heifers under 12 months old saw the best maintain last sales prices but 2nd quality types were marginally easier in price.
