Store Cattle & Sheep | Friday 22nd June 2018

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.

Store Cattle with Store & Breeding Sheep | Friday 25th May 2018

Store Cattle

Hexham & Northern Marts at their final sale in the month of May offered a sound entry of 691 catalogued head of store cattle.

With the main draws of top quality cattle now sold trade was in-line with that seen earlier in the month with certainly a more mixed entry on offer.

Within the older, forward section this week trade was led by Messrs Clark, Paxton Dene who brought a super run to Hexham and saw the benefit in their returns. They peaked at £1540 for a super shapely Limousin cross steer at 20 months but also followed this with two more bred in the same manner at £1520 and £1510. Messrs Clark saw 12 super bullocks average a rewarding £1395 whilst two smart heifers sold to £1350 and £1340 undoubtedly cementing the Longhorsley producers reputation at Hexham for well-bred, top quality forward stores.

The Walker Bros, Satley returned to the Hexham ring and shared the accolade of the dearest Charolais steer on the day with Willie Woodman, Great Chesters as both sold tremendous beast to £1460. Messrs Walker sold six strong bullocks to average £1358 whilst Mr Woodman stood firm at the rostrumside and saw his 16 steers come back at £1354 and ten heifers returned £1180 throughout.

The yearling entry of cattle saw the best end of trade maintained for the best of the offering however secondary types were harder to place. Steers in this mid-age range are still sought after and peaked at £1340 for a simply sublime Blonde cross bullock, the likes of which are seldom seen from Robert & John English, Brownsleazes at not yet thirteen months of age. The Uncle & Nephew also led the female trade in this class with a similarly well-bred heifer at the same age that cashed for £1215.  Steven Smith, East Greenridge sold a well presented Limousin bullock to £1230 and saw ten return £1136 whilst Messrs Walton, Greyside, Newbrough sold a ‘trademark’ smart packet of 13 Limousin cross steers at 12-14 months that peaked at £1210 and averaged £1109, all selling to regular and return purchasers.

The youngest class, those at ten months and younger also saw a share of the highlights for the right ‘goods’ and this bracket was topped by Messrs Gowland, Allergill, Weardale with their three best; a steer at £1225 and two heifers at £1220 and £1180 all by the Limmy Bull. The Brownleazes Blonde stamp followed next in the rankings as Messrs English sold another classy heifer for £1170.

Demand for grass cattle appears to be easing and producers with cattle yet to reach the market are urged to contact our team who will be delighted to advise your best route to the greatest returns.

Store Cattle & Store/Breeding Sheep | Friday 18th May 2018

Store Cattle

Hexham & Northern Marts offered a sound catalogued entry of 791 store cattle at their weekly sale including over 250 native breed types for the monthly special sale of such cattle.

With grazing season well and truly under way trade for all classes was certainly as dear as seen earlier in the month and in a number of cases slightly improved. The sale was once again dominated by a super run of forward stores from Willie Woodman, Great Chesters and these peaked at the phenomenal figure of £1700, not seen in the Hexham store ring for at least two years, which was achieved for an exceptional Charolais cross steer at 20 months of age bred from a deep, black Limousin cross cow, typical of those within the herd on the roman wall.  Twenty one steers averaged £1520 whilst heifers peaked at £1520 for a smashing trio of ¾ bred Limmy crosses and averaged £1481 for 16 sold.

In the middle of the day a fantastic offering of native breed cattle were presented by producers from all over the region and the upper echelons of this trade was occupied by the Angus breed. David Potts, Hedley Park brought out a nice packet of forward Angus heifers, suited to both breeding and/or feeding and Mr Potts was rewarded for his efforts peaking at £1310 for a pair of smart ladies by the black bull. These were followed by three singles from Dennis Burn, Aydonshields, sold to return £1295 and £1230 (twice). Steers peaked at £1220 for a well-grown bullock from Bobby & Michael Conley, Barrasford Green.  A small but select offering of Herefords peaked at £1180 for a 20 month steer from Lewis Beattie, Low Carriteth followed by another at £1100 from John & Jonathan Anderson, Whiskershiel, Elsdon.  Yearling types hit £1030 and £1020 for two pairs of thick red and white bullocks from Alan Parker, High Woolley whilst heifers peaked at £930 for a smart lady from Davy & Kate Dickinson, Chattlehope at the foot of The Carter Bar.   Shorthorn cattle were also presented in number and sold to £1060 and £1055 for yearling steers ideal for the grass from David Potts and from Messrs Smith, West Shields, Tow Law respectively.

The third portion of the catalogue comprised of a quality entry of continental cross cattle, mainly yearling types from a great deal of noted producers within our region. This class peaked at £1330 for a hefty Limousin cross steer from Messrs Ridley Shitlington Hall and was followed by three more From Messrs Graham, West Foreshield, Alston, Cumbria that came forward from the high tops of Alston Moor to return at £1290, £1285 and £1270 to cap a nice days trading for the Graham Family.

Heifers topped at £1260 for a smart Charolais cross sort from Philip Ogle, Wydon, Haltwhistle whilst Kevin Sparke, Little Swinburne sold a well-presented pair bred the same way for £1210.

Cattle under ten months of age peaked at £1080 twice; firstly for a pen of three Limousin cross young bulls in fine form from weekly consignor and renowned Scottish Cattleman Norman Forsyth, Low Bishopton, The Isle of Whithorn. The same price was achieved for a smart Limmy steer from Arthur & Richard Storrow, Willimoteswick, Bardon Mill. Heifers peaked at £1060 twice, both smart shapely sorts from Andrew Swallow, Dukesfield Hall, Slaley; one heading into North Yorkshire for finishing with the other heading North of The Border into a top quality suckler beef herd as a heifer replacement highlight the Hexham ring as an outlet that truly can meet a multitude of requirements.

As always cattle are actively being sourced for the sale next week and our team would welcome any enquiry from producers that have cattle yet to be sold into the store market.

Store Cattle, Store Sheep & Prize Show of Breeding | Friday 11th May 2018

Store Cattle

Hexham & Northern Marts held their traditional ‘May Term’ sale of store cattle and offered a catalogued entry of 867 head from noted herdmasters from across Northumberland, County Durham & Cumbria.

A sound entry of quality sorts were brought forward and as the countryside greens up and pastures bulk up trade looked dearer again on the week.

Top prices within the older, forward store section were dominated by Messrs Clark, Paxton Dene, Longhorsley who brought forward to Hexham their biggest run of cattle to date; an outstanding pen of twelve steers and two heifers, all well-bred sorts at 20-24 months which peaked at £1580 for a superb Limmy bullock and at £1380 for a heifer sister. The sought after run sold at a pace with buyers from all over the UK keen to purchase the quality on offer and saw the fourteen return a well-deserved average of £1466 throughout.

Heifer trade on the day peaked at £1435 for a big black Limousin cross heifer from noted bull breeders Messrs Nixon, Stotsfold with fresh faces at the ringside keen for best end heifers, these too looking dearer on the week.

John Baty, Catreen was well-rewarded for a smart and well-grown pen of Angus cross heifers which peaked at £1430 selling to Penshaw Farm Shop & Butchery owner Tony Green and saw his five, all by registered black bulls average £1368.

With over one hundred older cattle taken care of attention shifted, as it does at this sale to a strong catalogue of yearling types, all bred from suckler cow mothers and suitable for turnout to grass. The yearling classes were topped at £1380 by a hefty Limousin cross bullock from Messrs Haigh, Breckon Hill, Hexham followed by a Charolais cross steer which led a run of fifty cattle from Lewis Forster, West Nubbock that cashed at £1330.  Not to be outdone, the British Blue flag was flown high once again by Mrs Colleen Macdonald, Light Birks, Haydon Bridge as she peaked at £1300. This one tied with another Limmy, this time from Messrs Graham West Foreshield, Alston, Cumbria who also saw their lead heifer hit £1210.

Heifers in this class were also in hot demand and another cracking run from John & George Browell, Quarry House peaked at £1245 for a pair of trademark shapely ladies and it was the Browell brothers that led the trade for youngest class of cattle with a belting black Limmy cross steer at only 9 months of age which scaled to £1330. Andrew Swallow, Dukesfield Hall followed with another steer at £1290 whilst heifers topped at £1200 from Mel Stobbs, High Dalton with a proud Limousin cross and John Ogle, Wydon came next with a Charolais at £1170.

Trade was buoyant throughout for all classes and a ready demand from all quarters saw steers average £1055 and heifers level at £943. This demand is expected to remain and with numbers set to tighten up our auctioneers are actively seeking entries for next weeks sale which will include the monthly special sale of native breed types.  Breeders with cattle yet to reach the market are urged to contact our team who will be delighted to appraise stock on farm and outline the benefits of consigning such animals for sale at Hexham.

May Prize Show & Sale of Store Cattle & Sale of Sh | Friday 4th May 2018

Store Cattle

Hexham & Northern Marts held their Special May Prize show & sale of store cattle and offered a catalogued entry of 1132 head; an increase of over 100 head on the year with cattle consigned by noted vendors from Northumberland, County Durham, Cumbria and The Scottish Borders.

Prior to the sale the show classes were kindly sponsored by The National Beef Association, Hodgson Toyota (Newcastle) and Northumberland County Show and were expertly presided over by master judge and renowned local cattle finisher Mr Ricky Alder, Ponteland.

A small but select entry were put before the judge and after preliminary classes the ultimate result was practically a mirror image of the same occasion twelve months ago as Messrs Robinson, Boghall scooped another double whammy taking home both the overall and reserve champion rosettes. The overall championship was taken by a smart red Limousin cross heifer which had earlier been awarded the Limousin championship by the judge whilst the reserve champion ticket went to a thick British Blue cross steer from the Capheaton based family that stood as the Blue cross champion.  Both animals were, in true Boghall style impeccably well-turned out and halter led and a credit to the three generations of the family that now purvey top quality suckler bred show calves as their mainstay livestock enterprise having made the transition from milking dairy cows only a few short years ago.

Both animals were brought forward to the sale ring at 12 noon and after a photo call ringside with the sponsors bidding set off at a pace for the champion finally settling at £1380 with the hammer falling in favour of Messrs Eddon, Pickering, Yorkshire. The male reserve then followed and swifty surpassed its stable mate to change hands for the round figure of £1400 selling to Messrs Paterson, Stranraer to round off a short but exceedingly sweet days trading for The Robinson Family.

With the show taken care of the sale began with a sound entry of over 200 head of older, forward stores and the highlight of these, having been so for a number of years were the simply outstanding run of well-bred, well-grown Charolais and Limousin cross steer and heifers at 18-22 months from Messrs Woodman, Great Chesters on The Roman Wall. Fifty-eight of the best cattle to grace a store ring anywhere in the country were presented by Willie & Martin Woodman and their dedicated team of staff and buyers old and new flocked to the Hexham ringside to vie for the superb offering. 

The figures speak for themselves in respect of the cattle and the trade attained and as such Messrs Woodman returned home satisfied with the business done on the day. Twenty-nine steers peaked at £1660 and averaged a mighty £1599 per head with all but one selling to a long-standing Yorkshire based return purchaser whilst their 29 heifer sisters peaked at £1590 and averaged £1489 per head selling to high-end and niche finishers from both sides of the Pennines.

With the main focus of the day centered around yearling cattle from the North of England and Scottish Border uplands a tremendous show of quality were presented throughout the duration of the sale to a keen ringside of buyers from all over the UK. Once again highlights were plentiful and too numerous to detail in full however mention must go, as is often the case at this sale to Father & Son Ashley & John Murray, trading as Rochester & Murray, Glebe Farm, Butsfield, County Durham for their tremendous run of 33 steers and heifers from 9-14 months of age which utilise the best of both Pedigree Limousin and British Blue bloodlines to produce highly sought after cattle.  Their steers peaked at £1500 for a Blue and at £1430 for a Limmy whilst shapely heifers hit £1410 for their best Blue and £1270 for three smart Limousin ladies.  The entire run of twenty steers and thirteen heifers averaged £1189 throughout representing a nice increase on the year and credit for the hard work put into the consignment.

Cattle under ten months were also sought after and peaked at £1300 for a Limousin cross bullock from noted Roman Wall producers Messrs Ballantyne, Cowburn RIgg whilst a smart run were brought out by The Browell Brothers George & John, Quarry House and peaked at £1270 for a steer by the Limousin bull and £1200 for a heifer by the blue.  

With a warm weekend promised ahead surely graziers can expect to see some movement in the pastures and cattle can be turned out to make use of the sward as nature intended. With this successful sale now taken care of the auctioneers at Hexham look forward to the traditional May Term sale which takes place next week at this centre and promises another hefty entry of well-presented suckler bred cattle for the consideration of potential purchasers.   Producers that have yet to market their cattle are urged to contact our team to discuss the benefits of consigning cattle for sale at Hexham Auction Mart.
