Livestock

A great show of over 200 Stirks, Weaned Calves and Young Stores for the May Sale and a packed ringside of customers assembled which meant we could have sold many more than the 202 forward. A few runs of suckler bred types 6mo-9mo found some useful prices and like Wednesday’s sale, the hard bullocks and heifers for grazing were in strong demand as grass supply come’s more abundant. Dairy bred bullocks around 6-7mo regularly in the late 500’s and 600’s with better end into the 700’s, overall offering a bit of something for everyone. Nice to see penfuls of 5-10 head giving buyers chance to match up cattle well.

Next Saturday Livestock Sale is in 4 weeks time on 1st June 2019. Entries please to Mart Office.
