Rearing Calves to £400 (72) B&W av £92.21 Cont av £316.60 Native av £205.20 Those who responded to the call for calves went away very happy with all types a healthy trade and arguably no poor calves in the market. Limousin’s seemed to have found an extra gear today with Robert Metcalfe, Brearton topping with a pair of sweet heifers at £340 and Angus Dean £310 with a straight Limousin Bull. Black and White calves saw a marked increase today with an overall average of £92.21 for calves all under 8 ½ weeks. Attendance of spring rearers is a welcome sign to the ring side and a consistent run of calves is needed to keep them coming.

NB Next week already an entry of 5 Strong Limousin heifers
