Feeding Bulls – feeding bulls were a nice trade with most of the spring born calves knocking on the door at £800 and occasionally more. Autumn born cattle remain a good trade with the strong end £900 to £1075. Older bulls up to £1000 and long term out of spec bulls £900.

 

Feeding Cows - A cracking trade for a big entry of feeding cows right across the range from plain cattle to the top end. Continental & Angus cows were the trade of the day av £943 and a pure Char Cow to £1040 av £1010 for A Rogers.

 

Today was the Christmas Show and Sale which was sponsored by TES Agri (suppliers of fertilizer) and kindly judged by Mr Wainwright of Fife who awarded JH&SM Mason the champion rosette with their Homebred Limi Heifer and also awarded Reserve for their second prize Heifer. The Judge backed his choices and went on to buy both of them.

More cattle could have been sold with buyers offloading fat cattle for the Christmas trade and looking to replenish stock numbers. Suckler bred cattle looking dearest they have for a while as the Xmas shows have left sheds empty. Topping the steer trade was a Char steer from P+E Fox selling at £1350. Overall steer average was £947 and the overall Heifer average was £870. The strong stores sold better on the fortnight with buyers looking more active than previous weeks. Younger 14 month plus cattle getting away well with buyers wanting frame and size to finish.

More stores wanted for a fortnights time so please call the office with entries.
