Cast Cows & OTM

Another decent entry of cast cattle this week but an entry that lacked style and flesh compared to the previous weeks offering. This did not supress the trade, infact trade would be slightly sharper, especially the feeding types.

Leading the way this week was a British Blue cross cow to 235.5ppk was D,  J & W Sedgewick, Errington Red House.

The top native cow this week came out of the County Durham countryside, an Angus cross from Messrs G & J H Tomlinson & Son, Sunniside, which realised 209.ppk.

Ayrshire cows peaked at 173.5ppk from Messrs G G Baynes & Son, Marley Cote Walls.

Highest grossing animal on the day was a big, square Angus bull from Messrs P Featherstone & Son, Allendale Farm which achieved £1931.20.

More cattle needed on a weekly basis to satisfy demand.
