Feeding Bulls – a ring full of buyers for an increased entry of feeding bulls and prices continued at similar levels as the purchasers compete to fill pens with first draw Spring born bulls. 12 month old bulls in forward condition in short supply and very good to sell at £1350-£1500. Noticeably vendors presenting large lots of 9-10 month old Continental bulls saw a good following as buyers looked for cattle of similar ages from the same holding. Overall bull average was £1175.

Feeding Cows – a good entry of beef cows carrying flesh and trade on the up reflecting improved abattoir demand. Heavy continental cows £1300-£1410, lean first cross beef cows £900-£1000, plain cows £650-£700.

Stores - Strong stores with flesh selling similar to last week with dairy bred 15–18-month goods a touch better to sell. Angus bullocks sold to £1185 from CN&SA Harrison, Skipton. Some big framed Angus bullocks £1100-£1185 but with a shortage of flesh on this type today. Mediums Angus bullocks 15-18 months of age £980-£1080. Angus heifers with frame and flesh sold very well. Top Price of £1200 from KP Drinkall, Gargrave. Other strong fleshy heifers £1070-£1100.
Best bred Continental heifers met a fantastic trade especially for anything with a good thick end of any age and short-term goods of all grades. Best thick short-term heifers £1300+ F&A Walmsley, Blackburn had a run of Lim heifers which sold at £1380, £1480, £1480, £1510. Other good ended heifers with less weight about £1220-£1300. More commercial feeder £1080-£1160 unless weight and flesh were forward on a commercial beast and £1200 could be achieved.
Blues similar with a top price of £1280 from P&J Brown, Otley for his dairy cross blue heifer. Other dairy bred blue as nice feeders with frame but not too soft £1100-£1190. Smaller feeding end £980-£1060.
Continental bullocks no different with trade really. A couple of regular faces unable to attend today but buyers from a far kept the bullocks a strong trade. CT&EM Hammond, Harrogate sold 14–15-month-old bullocks to £1450 for Blonde X. Blue bullocks sold to £1360 for a strong beast with plenty of flesh from M Ryder & Sons, Harrogate.

Black & White Bullocks £895-£940 for 16–18-month-old feeders. Black & Whites with more age and frame £980-£1015.
Suckled calves a nice trade with buyers out in force for the smart bullocks and heifers. Lim heifer from JC Walker, Clitheroe sold a 12-month-old sweet heifer at £1320.
