Market Report – Wednesday 9th January 2013

FORTNIGHTLY SALE OF YOUNG FEEDING BULLS, STORE BULLOCKS & HEIFERS, BREEDING CATTLE FORWARD: 949 HEAD OF CATTLE Comprising: 323 Young Feeding Bulls, 610 Bullocks & Heifers, 16 Breeding Cattle The Great New Year Sale of Store & Breeding Cattle was held at Skipton Mart on Wednesday. Trade was on a high note with the overall average standing at £990 for 933 head of cattle sold through the store ring. It was great to see the sale packed with no spare room to sit or stand for most of the day, and the volume of customers helped to produce a fast sale with the first lot sold at 10:00am and the final lot sold at 5:25pm. Strong cattle were a tremendous trade with 438 head out of the 933 sold at four figure prices. Young Cattle were every bit as dear as just before Christmas with heifers especially well sought.
