Fortnightly Sale of Young Feeding Bulls, Store Bullocks & Heifers, Breeding Cattle Forward: 487 head of cattle Comprising: 405 Feeding Cattle (106 Young Bulls, 56 Beef Feeding Cows, 243 Bullocks & Heifers) & 82 Breeding Cattle.


 

106 Feeding Bulls – Trade was animated very much like last fortnight with short to medium keep bulls in strong demand and seeing 7 bulls at £1300 plus, and a further 19 bulls in the £1200’s. Overall the 106 Bulls forward averaged £1061.98 per head. Messrs Pratt from Erringdon topped the sale at £1380, with Jonathan Townley of Clapham selling a brace at £1360. Rick Holroyd from Wadsworth topped his pen at £1360 as well. The nice medium keep yearling bulls mainly around £1050 to £1150 and some pushing £1200. Other younger or plainer continentals from £750 to £900. Some strong Angus Bulls making 4 figures, whilst younger Beef Shorthorns mainly mid £800’s.

 

56 Grazing Cows and Bulls – With cow beef in strong demand at the moment there was a response at the ringside as feeder finishers were in very good form and keen to secure the cattle which had arrived from a wide area including a consignment of 15 fresh weaned cows up from Lincolnshire, and seeing an overall selling average of £941.
Two Cast bulls in the entry selling at £1450 and £1380, whilst the better fleshed cows were easy to sell, top price at £1330 for a Charolais from TE Walker of Barden, closely followed by a British Blue at £1320 from JS Stephenson of Bordley. The leaner end of working cows were good to sell and would probably look the trade of the day.
More Beef Cows required at our Wednesday sales with a strong line up of buyers, speak to Jeremy or Ted for more details.


243 Store Bullock & Heifers - Store cattle following on as recent weeks with trade once again flying. Big strong stores with weight selling to a full ringside of buyers.

Grazing blue bullocks selling in the £950+. Char Bullocks sold tremendous. £1315 was top call for a Char Bullock from P&E Fox other feeding beast £1090+ with grazing sorts around the £850 mark.

All Native cattle sold to the range of buyers all regular to Skipton. Strong feeding heifers either side of £1000 some feeding heifers with less frame could be purchased at late £800’s to early £900’s. Angus Steers with frame weight and size £1190-£1100 with next grade £1100-£1040. Younger Bullocks around the 9-14 months for grazing £850-£950.

Other dairy bred Blues still reaching over £1100 for some with others regular £1000+. 55 Lim Heifers was included in todays entry, with the same trade as the blues. A lot of younger sorts of grazing Limis where trade wasn’t affected by the recent weather. £780- £840 for stronger grazers with some younger ones £700-£780. Strong Limis with size at around 14 month old selling £920-£1040 selling mainly to buyers looking to feed and sell back through the liv auction system.

Todays larger entry was swelled with a dispersal of 20 stock cows and calves from Mr J Sykes, Huddersfield who’s run of 20 outfits saw 9 lots sell at £2000 or more, peaking at £2900. Plenty of customers to take the cattle on offer and encouraging to see producers looking to swap geld cows in one ring for working outfits in the breeding ring. The main of the nice outfits of young 2nd to 4th calved cows with spring/summer born calves £1500/£1800, with plainer outfits £1250/£1450.
