CCM AUCTIONS held their fortnightly Cattle Sale at Skipton Mart on Wednesday where another large show was presented for sale. There were some good quality bullocks on offer with 8 pens achieving £1,300 or more to a top of £1,460, with a both highest priced pens of 3 or more making in excess of £1,300, whilst decent Beef sired bullocks from dairy cows were selling for around £1,200 up to £1,295 for British Blues from John & Alison Spensley, Thorlby  who also sold MRI Bullocks to £1,175 including a pen of 4 MRI at £1,125 each. Strong Heifers were also in keen demand many making £1,150 to £1,250. Several runs of quality suckled heifer calves saw the smart end good to sell with Simon & Audrey Taylor from Cumberworth, John, Jill & James Huck, Hubberholme and Jonathan Townley, Clapham achieving prices from £1,100 up to a top of £1,290. Second quality commercial heifer calves though were no dearer on the fortnight, although as grass day approaches these will probably take a lift then. A plainer selection of bulls maintained the trade of recent sales.

The breeding section saw a very good entry for numbers, some quality outfits of heifers with calves were good to sell, whilst incalf cattle were a similar trade to previous sales.
