Rearing Calves to £440 (85) B&W av £96.68 Cont av £362.33 Native av £320 Another handy show of calves today with 85 on offer with a large proportion of Black and Whites up for grabs, 47 in fact. A mixed bag of black and whites today with young calves making strong prices, and fleshy calves heading nicely towards £100 on onwards with an overall average of £96.68 topping at £180 for a fantastic bull from Whitakers of Bolton Abbey.

Continentals were also good to sell with heifers looking as strong as bulls on today’s price. A blue heifer from Richard Sutcliffe topped proceedings at £400 with Richard also taking joint top in the Bulls at £440 with James Gooch keeping him company. David Hall of Conistone Cold would have a very nice trade with his four to five week old blue heifers averaging around £360.


It hasn’t been mentioned for a few weeks but black and white calves averaged 36 days of age and Native and Continental Calves averaged 43 days of age for today’s sale.
