A large show of calves on offer today but not quite as strong as trade as previous weeks with the cold weather holding a couple of buyers back today, however on the whole calves sold away nicely. A run of strong blues from JR&MJ Moon of Wigglesworth sold to £410 twice. The Blue heifers were not quite as potent today, however Houseman’s of Church Farm Enterprises managed £380 three times for some 5 week old heifers and GCL Stephenson made £340 with a lovely 4 week old heifer. Despite a limited number of buyers on black and white calves today trade was brisk with the better end topping out at £145 for a consignment from Chadwick and Leaver of Southfield, Burnley with an average for all entrants of £68.15.
