SATURDAY LIVESTOCK 29 JUNE 2019

CCM Auctions Conducted their Monthly Sale of 105 Stirks, Weaned Calves and Young Store Cattle A busy grass day meant for a quieter ringside of buyers for today’s sale. Trade was also impeded by the falling finished beef price with most buyers looking to buy cattle for less. Best well grown cattle for their age could still make good money. Thomas Atkins would see £300+ for some lovely runs of Friesian bullocks with Suckler bred cattle selling away nicely for well shaped consignments from vendors such as Messrs Cornforth of Thornton seeing £825 for some British Blue heifers and Messrs Ireland of Waddington seeing a pen of yearling bullocks to £730.
