Cast Cows & OTM

A much plainer, leaner show of cast cows & bulls this week met a stronger trade once again.

Messrs A & D Proctor, Swarland Old Hall made the successful trip down from Mid Northumberland with some lovely Limosuin and Limousin cross cows that cashed to £1907.46 and £1826.24.

Frank & Reg Simpson sold non assured cows to 227.5ppk and £1865.50.

Plenty of leaner, feeding types surpassed the 160ppk mark, leaving vendors extremely satisfied.

Reminder that next week sees our Annual Christmas Primestock Show & Sale for both cows and clean cattle. We ask all those wishing to exhibit cattle in the show to have them here and penned for 9.30am for judging to commence at 10.00am.
