STORE CATTLE - WEDNESDAY 6TH JANUARY 2016

Fortnightly Sale of Young Feeding Bulls, Store Bullocks & Heifers, Breeding Cattle Forward: 1,528 head of cattle Comprising: 412 Young Feeding Bulls, 1,110 Bullocks & Heifers, 5 Feeding Cows & 1 Cow & Calf. An increased entry of feeding bulls at the opening sale of store cattle attracted a strong line up of 21 separate buyers keen to purchase cattle but at a reduced price to reflect current uncertainty on dead weight pricing. Plenty of competition for well bred 2015 spring calves in forward condition with smaller bulls harder to move and strong short keep bulls £1100 to £1200.



In the store cattle section trade generally in line with everyone’s expectations, although the show of cattle would generally be a shade younger than last year with not as greater proportion of the cattle being forward strong sorts. Younger cattle met a nice trade on the year as well. Overall there were an extra 115 head of cattle sold above last year’s sale.
 

NEXT SALE – WEDNESDAY 20th JANUARY 2016.

1,200 HEAD comprising 350 Young Bulls and 850 Bullocks and Heifers

Entries to Mart Office by Wednesday 13th January
