Suckler Calves Sell Well
Demand for quality Store Cattle continues to outstrip supply, especially for the younger shapey specimens.
Tom Ryan saw his 11mo saw his 11mo Limousin Cross Blue Steers sell to £970 closely followed by a cracking pen of Steers from J H Kirk and Sons which peaked at £870. Frank Speed put forward a lorry load of "little plums" 8mo Blue Cross selling to £770.
The trade continued throughout the sale, forward Steers from Mr Winters topped the market at £1175 (Angus x) and £1100 (Hereford x), Blue Heifers from the same vendor at £990 just pipping David Airey at £980.
Plenty of decent wintering Cattle between £650 and £750 looking, perhaps, the best value of all.
Highlight in the Bull section, a pair of registered Simmental youngsters at 7mo from Stephen Wainwright making £765, quality sells!
