54 Feeding Cows/Stock Bulls/OTM Clean

RS Harker & Son Grayrigg Hall topped the Cow section at £1440 with a Limousin, with others at £1430, £1300 £1240 and £1220 from the same home. E&AM Simpson & Son of Pateley Bridge sold at £1300 for Lim crosses, and two other vendors achieved £1220, JA&R Caton Otterburn with a Simm x and TM Harrison of Threshfield for an Angus, who also sold another at £1210. Other heavier twice crossed cows £1100 to £1200.
A half meat cow for medium keep was a straight trade, and the short to medium keep first cross cows sold well, but with housing around the corner the lighter plainer cows were harder work.
