Rearing Calves to £455 (94) 94 calves through the ring today, with a 4 month old Stirk from George and Pauline Fleetwood topping the day at £660. Fred Houseman topped the female calves at £455 for a tremendous British Blue heifer selling to regular buyers Stephen and Malcom Abbott. A run of Flekvieh calves on offer today met a strong trade with Colin Bentley of Thirsk selling the top price of £255.
