Store Cattle & Sheep | Friday 16th February 2018

Store Cattle

Hexham & Northern Marts at their weekly sale had forward an entry of 524 store cattle which included over 170 head of native breed cattle for the special monthly sale of such types.

A smarter show of older cattle sold dearer on the week and the sale was topped at £1470 for two very smart Limousin cross heifers from Geoff Hubbuck, Rising Sun which courted a great deal of interest to eventually sell to a North Northumberland based suckler producer as herd replacements.

The same vendor enjoyed a solid trade throughout and averaged £1210 for 12 sold.

It was fitting that in the native sale week it was an Angus cross that led the steer trade selling to £1450 from Geoff Roddam, Blackcarts. The big hefty bullock was the first sold by the noted Angus cattle breeder and feeder by his new stock bull ‘Hallington Lord Harvey’ from Alan & Steven Lawsons pedigree herd proving that Northumbrian genetics and breeding pay dividends through the Hexham ring.  So too do top Cumbrian cattle as Messrs Woodmass, Howard House, Gilsland brought forward a great run of bullocks and peaked at £1440 for a super Angus cross to average £1272 for ten sold.

All classes were dearer on the week and no more so with the youngest class of cattle under ten months of age which went on again from the great rates seen last Friday. Limousin steers sold to a noteworthy £1135 from Craig Armin, Stanley, Co Durham, whilst heifers sold to £1090 for a super smart sort from John Reed & Sons, Lands Farm, Weardale. The latter consignors brought out a great run of 6 steers and 10 heifers which averaged a commendable £1076 throughout.  Similarly and continuing a great seam of Cumbrian cattle which sold well on the day were a smart packet of well bred sorts from Ridley & David Milburn, Wallend, Brampton that peaked at £1055 for steers and £1000 for heifers to average highly at £992 for 4 steers and 9 heifers sold by the father & son team.

A super run of commercial, over wintered hill-bred suckled calves were brought down from Redesdale by James Pritchard, Evistones and this sought after annual run were presented in fine form and sold well averaging £925 for 12 steers and 17 heifers, representing a marked increase on the year with many selling to return purchasers.

Demand for all classes shows no sign of easing and with daylight hours increasing and the March show season approaching the auctioneers are actively seeking cattle to fulfil buyer requirements.

Store Cattle & Sheep | Friday 9th February 2018

Store Cattle

Hexham & Northern Marts at their weekly sale of store cattle offered for sale a sound entry of 418 head.

A more mixed show of older sorts were presented at the start of the sale and this quality was reflected in the rates seen. The sale was topped at £1370 for a strong and smart red Limousin steer at 18 months shown in forward condition by Ridley Carins, Broomhall, Ponteland. His run of 5 well-bred sorts averaged a noteworthy £1306 throughout.

The dearest Blue cross bullock on the day was a far-travelled, well=shaped example from Messrs Morgan, Stalmine, Lancashire which at 19 months changed hands at £1305 proving cattle from all regions sell well at this centre. Angus cattle also saw a swift trade on the day and peaked at £1280 for a 20 month old steer from Messrs Willis, Braeside, Alnwick. This price was replicated twice over by the Charolais breed; firstly for a 20 month old heifer from Messrs Tweddle, Springwell and once again for a 14 month old bullock from within the annual consignment from James Herdman, Edlingham Newtown which saw his thirteen, all by the white sire average £1183 representing a sizeable increase on the year.

Messrs Lee, Harwoodshield, Hexhamshire came forward with their first offering of the new year and their usual quality stamp was evident. Six steers topped at £1230 and averaged a well-deserved £1166 at just 12-13 month of age for cattle brought forward on the day from amongst snow covered heather hills.

With trade for older sorts easier than seen previously the opposite was true as the classes of cattle got younger during the course of the sale. Any one of perhaps twelve ‘high-end’ consignments could be highlighted as bell-ringers on the day with trade for yearling and younger sorts nothing short of ‘blistering’. All selling at ten months of age or younger Messrs Robinson, Boghall led with two heifers; a Limmy and a Blue cross which made £1160 and £1090, these were followed by another heifer, a Limousin cross from Messrs Storrow, Willimoteswick that hit £1085. The dearest steer calves on the day were a smashing pair of red Limousin cross bullocks with bags of shape and style from Willie and Stuart Weatherson, Edges Green that sold for £1070 and Messrs Bell, Woodhall, Bardon Mill enjoyed a stout trade from start to finish for their offering of seven with steers hitting £1060 and heifers rattling into £1080 to average £1038 at 9-10 months.  Messrs Lee, Agars Hill came forward from Whitfield with their fourth offering in as many weeks and were not disappointed; their super run of 8 heifers caught the eye of many round the ring, the most steadfast of which took examples home having peaked at £1045 and averaged £990 throughout.

Vendors across the region that are contemplating marketing over-wintered calves are politely urged to contact our auctioneers who are ideally placed to advise when best to reach the market place to maximise your returns. Entries for next weeks sale, including native breed cattle are invited and should be with the auctioneers by 10.30am on Monday 12th Febraury.

Store Cattle and Sheep | Friday 26th January 2018

Store Cattle

Hexham & Northern Marts at their last store sale in the month of January offered 463 head of store cattle and suckled calves, an entry of almost double the figure seen at the same sale a year ago.

A mixed show of quality amongst the older entry saw rates a little easier than seen previously however trade for the best end of cattle remains buoyant. The sale was topped at a whopping £1535 for a simply outstanding black Limousin cross bullock at 23 months of age from father & Son team Chris & Andrew Johnson, Paxton Dene, Longhorsley.  The same home produced another smart sort, this one a red bullock at the same age which sold for the second highest price on the day of £1455 to the same buyer.

It would be remiss not to mention the exceptionally well bred Blonde cross steer which was brought out with trademark shape and style by Robert & John English, Brownsleazes, Wark which at 15 months of age sold late in the day but attracted furious bidding and competition from a number of ‘high end’ finishers; all keen to take this topper home. The bullock was a superb example of a store ring animal that in the right hands would fulfil either a high street butchers requirements or the weight and grade desired by some specialist deadweight outlets and eventually changed hands for a well-deserved £1435.

No less than ten percent of the total entry, both steers and heifers sold in excess of £1300, indeed it was also Messrs English that sold the dearest heifer on the day; a sister to the aforementioned bullock which at the same age realised £1340.

A number of ‘middle aged’ consignments sold well on the day one of which was a great run of Limmy cross calves at 12-13 months bred in Weardale, County Durham by Alistair & Harry Ward, Rogerley Hall who presented a smart pen full of twenty steers and heifers that peaked at £1110 and £1195 respectively and averaged a solid £1072 throughout, the bulk being purchased by a new, West Yorkshire based purchaser.

The youngest class of cattle at ten months and under maintained their recent high rates and demand shows no sign of easing at this centre. Suckled steers calves peaked at £1070 from Messrs Lee, Agars Hill followed by another at £1030 from Messrs Yeats, Woodhouse with a third from Messrs Reed, Dyke Nook selling to £1015.  Heifers also sold well and peaked at £940 for a smart Blue cross, also from Woodhouse, Coanwood.

With a full crowd of buyers at the ringside and fresh faces appearing each week the quality cattle available at Hexham continues to attract discerning purchasers that require top quality beef bred animals for finishing and turnout to grass. If you have cattle to sell and are based in Northumberland, County Durham, Cumbria, North Yorkshire or The Scottish Borders please contact our auctioneers on 01434 605444 who will be delighted to discuss how Hexham & Northern Marts can assist with your marketing requirements.

Store Cattle & Sheep | Friday 19th January 2018

Store Cattle

Hexham & Northern Marts offered for sale 623 catalogued head of store cattle at their weekly store sale, representing an increase of over 100 head on the same sale held in 2017. Within this entry over 150 head of native breed types were presented for the special monthly sale of such cattle.

Approximately half of the entry was made up of stronger types at 18 months and older however the quality on show was of a lesser degree than that seen one week earlier. With cattle from Northumberland, County Durham, Cumbria and Lancashire brought forward on the day there were yet again many lots sold at great rates and to vendor’s satisfaction.  

Leading the trade on the day and highlighting the obvious benefits of a targeted approach to marketing native breed types on one day each month was a super panful of forward Angus cross steers; all by registered pedigree sires and bred from big framed home-bred Sim-Luing mothers consigned by local breeder and noted authority on such native breed cross breeding genetics Mr Geoff Roddam, Blackcarts, Hexham. Geoff topped the sale with a thumping pen of 3 steers which outperformed any number of continental cross competitors on the day and sold for a hefty £1420 per head.  Sold in pairs and greater numbers 20 super bullocks were all cashed and with none falling below £1300 returned an average of £1362 throughout.

The Limousin and Charolais breeds were in hot pursuit, both peaking at £1410; the former from Messrs Herdman, Lunns House and the latter from Messrs Eggleston, Thornham Hill.

Female trade on the day was unusually peaked by a younger heifer at only 15 months of age from John Reed, The Knarr, Brampton, Cumbria which sold later in the day and after fierce competition settled at a noteworthy £1280; one of three he sold on the day at the same age to average £1220.

Older heifers peaked at £1260 for a 20 month old charolais cross lady from the Milburn Bros, Holling Hill who sold 12 cattle (8 steers/4 heifers) to a return of £1285. Noted local limousin breeders Messrs Nixon, Stotsfold, Hexhamshire brought out a super run of pure bred red calves at 14 months and the obvious genetics present in the cattle paid dividends. Steers peaked at £1250 however it was a smashing pen of 4 heifers; all with shape and style in abundance that were simply ‘peas in a pod’ and created a stir round the ring to finally cash for £1240 to a Boroughbridge based fifty-two-weeks-of-the-year buyer.

The youngest class of cattle at ten months and younger continue at a pace here at Hexham. Steers peaked at £980 for an Angus from Messrs Stevenson, Tursdale House, Durham, followed by a super Limmy sort from Ken & Hilary Ridley, Allenshields that sold for £935. Heifer trade was dominated by Eastgate based father and son team; John & Mark Emmerson, Haggate who sold in succession at £890, £880 and £870 and averaged £839 for 6 smart Weardale bred heifer calves.

Currently all classes are in great demand and our team of auctioneers will gladly travel any distance to visit and appraise your cattle with a view to securing your consignment for sale through our buoyant sale ring at Hexham.

Store & Breeding Cattle & Store Sheep | Friday 12th January 2018

Hexham & Northern Marts at their weekly sale of store cattle offered a catalogued entry of 458 head and all classes were noticeably dearer on the week.

A full ringside of buyers were present from the start of the sale and all were keen for cattle following the festive break. A tremendous show of quality was evident amongst the early portion of the sale; the older, forward sorts which saw the biggest lift on the week.  The sale was topped by a superb example of a Limousin cross steer at 23 months of age from Andrew & Cath Swallow, Dukesfield Hall, Hexhamshire which exceeded the now rarely seen figure in the store ring and settled at a whopping £1560. 

There were many more cattle; steers and heifers of noted breeds; Limousin, Charolais and Simmental that sold in excess of £1400 with the leading consignment of steers coming from Messrs Eggleston, Thornham Hill who sold nine powerful Charolais cross steers at 18-21 months to a top of £1460 and a deserved average of £1406.

Richard Johnson, West Wharmley led the heifer trade with two separate pure bred Charolais ladies which both realised £1400 whilst Derek & Vincent Milburn, Holling Hill peaked at £1365 and averaged a newsworthy £1260 for a load of twenty sold, all by the Charolais bull at 20 months.

The middle age range of beast; those 11-17 months also sold well on the day and peaked at £1370 for a super black steer from Willie Patterson, Halton Red House whilst heifers topped at £1130 for a smart sort again from Messrs Swallow, Dukesfield Hall.

The youngest class of cattle were markedly improved on the week and at ten months of age and younger peaked at £1080 for a Limousin steer from Lewis Forster, West Nubbuck whilst Willie Weatherson, Edges Green sold a smart and shapely Limmy heifer bred on the Roman Wall for £1045 at only 9 months of age.

With yet more enquiry from potential purchasers keen to attend the weekly sales of beef bred store cattle at Hexham our auctioneers would welcome instructions of intent to sell from breeders and vendors of store cattle from the North of England and Scottish Borders who can be assured of our best service at all times.

Store Cattle and Sheep | Friday 5th January 2018

Store Cattle

At their first sale of the New Year Hexham & Northern Marts offered for sale 200 head of store cattle representing a significant increase on the year.

Whilst a mixed show were presented quality types continued to sell at the same rates to those seen prior to the festive season with perhaps the slight exception being the youngest class of cattle which appear to have eased somewhat.

The sale was topped by Messrs Walker Bros, Satley with a big Charolais cross steer at £1460 at only 18 months of age. Limousin cattle peaked at £1400 for a smart sort from George Herdman, Lunns House and the Angus entry was dominated by Geoff Roddam, Blackcarts who sold a hefty pair at £1380 each.

The heifer trade was dominated by a sweet run of well-bred Charolais cross heifers from Ken Sisterson, Newlands Haugh Farm, Northumberland which peaked at £1320 and averaged £1190 for 9 sold by the noted breeder of Charolais bulls.

Three vendors came forward with cattle aged in the yearling bracket that ‘rang the bell’; the first Richard Walton, Linacres, Wark sold a thumping black Limmy bullock at 14 months that cashed at £1250. This was followed by another similarly shapely sort from John Reed, The Knarr, Brampton which changed hands at £1215 and completing the trio of high flyers were Messrs Ballantyne, Cowburn Rigg, The Roman Wall who saw their pen leader realise £1205.

Cattle under ten months were headed up yet again by Bruce Watson, Baal Hill, Weardale who sold his best 8 month old Limousin cross steer at £945 and a heifer sister at £880. Tom Teasdale, Kellah sold two separate bullocks at a similar age for £920 each.

More cattle of all classes are urgently required to satisfy buyer demand which looks set to increase as the first month of 2018 progresses.
