Rearing Calves to £435 X2 (70)
B&W av £75 Cont av £277 Native av £158.46
Decent show of calves on show this morning with a mixed trade throughout the sale. Some fierce bidding met the better end of the British Blue bulls with Joss Lancaster topping twice at £435 with the majority of the British Blue bulls £350 +. Aberdeen Angus bulls again made some healthy prices with £210 the average topping at £255 from Broadley Farms.
In the heifers a younger show of calves made for harder selling however even stronger calves struggled to the money even with all the usual bidders present. Native heifers certainly less money with an odd face missing for the lambing period.
Black and whites returned on a better trade than last week with best bulls to £165 from A&SL Throup & Chadwick and Leaver with 4wk + calves anywhere from £80+.
