STORE CATTLE - WEDNESDAY 3RD MARCH 2021

Fortnightly Sale of Young Feeding Bulls, Store Bullocks & Heifers, Breeding Cattle; Forward: 707 head of cattle - Comprising: 668 Feeding Cattle (164 Young Bulls, 60 Beef Feeding Cows & Bulls, 444 Bullocks & Heifers) & 39 Breeding Cattle.

 

Feeding Bulls – a very strong trade averaged £1050 with the middle run of cattle a shade more expensive on the fortnight. Bulls under 12 months averaged £1057 and bulls at 12 months and over with most of theM February 2020 calves averaged £1093. At less that 400kg most of the smaller bulls hit £1000 probably because they finish towards the end of the season for spring calves hitting 16 months when market and factory price improves. Bulls are £110 up on the same sale last year driven by lighter number of suckler bred animals because of the continuing reduction in numbers of beef breeding cattle.

 

Feeding Cows – the cast bull buyers were supplemented by breeders looking for bulls to go on to work. Top call was a Limousin at £1780 from Jan Feather followed by a Brit Blue from the same home at £1640.

Cast cow trade was stronger than ever. The average includes a good number of light weight and plain cows which were a very good trade. Any number of continental cow over £1100 and plenty at £1200 plus with the pick a Limousin at £1540 from CT Akrigg.
