STORE & BREEDING CATTLE - WEDNESDAY 25TH OCTOBER 2017

SKIPTON AUCTION MART MARKET REPORT – WEDNESDAY 25th OCTOBER 2017 Fortnightly Sale of Young Feeding Bulls, Store Bullocks & Heifers, Breeding Cattle Forward: 368 head of cattle Comprising: 101 Young Feeding Bulls, 27 Beef Feeding Cows, 222 Bullocks & Heifers, & 18 Breeding Cattle. A high percentage of 2017 born bull calves in today’s sale. Stronger 2017 suckled bulls got away well with the remnants of the 2016 crop to buyers looking for cattle to go straight to feed. An average of £783.50 for bulls under 12months is slightly deceptive as most of these were born June 2017 onwards, these young types finding a ready audience at £500-£650. Stronger bulls saw some high prices as noted below. Feeding cows were a very seasonal entry of leaner types, but trade was good for all classes with an overall average of £709, topping at £1,250. Store Cattle saw all extremes penned for sale, anything a bit smarter and in forward condition sold away quickly with customers keen, stronger and older types were a decent trade, and smart end of young cattle were better to sell, but anything a bit plainer was a similar trade.
