Stores - A nice entry of cattle, which included the Autumn Show & Sale for 2020 and 2021 born calves.
Older Continental Bullocks were a straight trade on the day with no real stormers present, in the main just good commercial sorts. Messrs Hall of Gargrave had a pair of Black Lim crosses selling at £1350, whilst a nice pair of Charolais crosses from N&SJ Pinder Coniston Cold were close behind at £1340. P&E Fox had some strong cattle not just as old as the above, taking the 1st Prize ticket with a 16month old Limousin (June 20) selling at £1340. Not many other suckler bred older bullocks on offer, but mainly £1200 plus. Strongest Dairy Beef crosses approaching £1200, up to mid £1200s, whilst the next grade of decent framed types £1080 to £1150 generally, whilst more long term types were £900 to £1050.
Young Suckler Bred bullocks were a nice trade with many annual customers visiting this sale looking for cattle to farm on. Lim Blue crosses with that extra spark of carcass suitable for retail trade could make £950 to £1040 at 7mo to 10mo, the next grade of Lim Blue crosses £800 to £920.
Charollais Bullocks attracted a good amount of interest, with calves in the 6mo-7mo age range generally mid to late £800’s, odd ones sneaking over £900.
The heifers on offer saw a good trade for older short keep suckler bred heifers suitable for retail shop trade or quality wholesale use. Continental heifers with shape, flesh and a decent sized frame commanding £1200 to £1400, Messrs Nelson of Bordley making £1480 and £1350 of 17month old Limousin crosses, P&E Fox made £1420 of a 17mo old Limousin too. Messrs Handley of Thornton in Lonsdale peaked at £1400 with others at £1360 and £1330 at 18/20 months, whilst Janet Sheard of Almondbury hit £1315 with a trio of nice Limousins at 8 months.
A continental Heifer just a shade younger or smaller was £1050 to £1150. Best end of Dairy Beef crosses could make £1100 to £1200, strong framed types £950 to £1080, whilst an older but softer plainer sort either side of £900.
The Suckler bred heifers, like the bullocks, found an excellent enquiry. Best end of 2021 born heifers saw a 6 month old Lim Blue cross from Messrs Fleetwood at £1050, with best Lim Blue crosses generally £900 to £950 at 6mo/7mo, and £800 to £880 an easily obtainable figure for nice commercial Lim,Blue or Charollais crosses. The smaller end of young suckler heifers 2021 born generally in the 700’s.
