Hexham Store Cattle & Sheep | Friday 6th July 2018

Store Cattle

Hexham & Northern Marts at their weekly sale of store cattle offered a catalogued entry of 137 head.  A more mixed show than seen previously sold easier on the week as no doubt harvest is beginning under a baking sun which is now showing signs of detriment on certain pastures.

With a dearth of forward steers on the day it was a trio of Limousin heifers that held the tops slots; the sale leader was a smart and hefty red lady from Brian Charlton, East Newham that scaled to £1255 whilst another from Mark Linkleter, West Kirkheaton followed at £1180 and an older type at 24 months from Kirkley Hall College changed hands at £1170.

Whilst fleshed types sold well across the board, leaner, longer keep types were harder to cash and the nationwide need for a good shower of rain took its toll on younger grass cattle.

Store Cattle

Hexham & Northern Marts held their weekly store cattle sale and offered 90 head for sale. As is often the case during Royal Highland Show week both numbers and buyers were short however all classes remained a brisk trade through the Hexham ring.

The sale was topped by a super Limousin cross steer from Messrs Carr, Camphill at 20 months. The well-bred sort from the Barrasford based father and son team of John & John Jnr scaled to £1300 and was purchased by a Cumbrian finisher.

Kirkley Hall College sold the dearest heifer on the day at £1270 for a smart Limousin heifer at 27 months which went home with the same purchaser whilst the dearest native beast was a sizeable Angus cross by a registered pedigree bull from Messrs Faill, Hedley West Riding, Stocksfield. This one also changed hands at £1270 to the delight of Messrs Faill who were well pleased with their trading on the day.

As show season, shearing and grass operations are now all in full swing cattle remain in demand and buyers are keen for numbers. Kindly contact our auctioneers if you have cattle which are yet to reach the marketplace and we will be delighted to assist to ensure maximum returns are attained.

Store Cattle & Sheep | Friday 15th June 2018

Store Cattle

Hexham & Northern Marts sold 177 store cattle at their weekly catalogued sale. A full ringside of buyers assembled at start time to bid for a smaller number of cattle which is typical at this time of year.  A very mixed show sold well throughout with buyers keen for all classes and leading the trade on the monthly native breed day was a hefty and deep Angus bullock from Dennis Burn, Aydonshields, Hexhamshire which at just 20 months scaled to £1400.  The leading heifer was also by the increasingly popular Black sire and was consigned by Messrs Bennison, Warden Law and at 17 months the Angus cross sold well to hit £1380.

The younger ranks of cattle were dominated by a super run of 20 very well bred Limousin and Simmental cross steers and heifers from Messrs Walton, Greyside, at 12-14 months of age which attracted additional buyers to the ringside and returned just rewards for the Fourstones based family. A pair of shapely Limousin steers peaked at £1165 whilst a big SImmy bullock hit £1155 and heifers topped at £1085 for a smart sister to the pair of steers.

With numbers shortening and demand still evident across the board our auctioneers would be delighted to speak with any producers that are contemplating releasing cattle onto the market. We would gladly attend farms to appraise cattle to ensure maximum returns are attained and our team can be contacted on 01434 605444.
