MARKET REPORT - WEDNESDAY 2nd APRIL 2014

Forward: 454 head of cattle Comprising: 146 Young Feeding Bulls, 306 Bullocks & Heifers, 2 Breeding Cattle. CCM Auctions conducted their fortnightly sale of cattle at Skipton Mart on Wednesday. Numbers were still good but the quality was rather more mixed than of late, whilst prices were largely unchanged from the previous sale. Good strong cattle were every bit as dear as recently with several runs of 18-20mo cattle receiving plenty of interest from the ringside. Younger cattle were varied in quality, some bullocks and commercial heifers looking better value than of late.
