7 Dairy -
A tidy show of dairies attracted a good following of prospective and successful purchasers. David Booth from Lothersdale led the prices with the first prize heifer, nicely calved 3 weeks, and at 34 litres she sold for £2000. Another fresh heifer from the same home achieved £1700. A solid average of £1673 was achieved for pedigree new calved heifers. Incalf cattle sold to £1250 form GD Home of Bolton Abbey.
Next sale in 2 weeks time (23rd March) please speak to Sarah with your entries of ring the mart office, and with the ever growing ringside of buyers we can certainly sell more cattle than are currently coming forward. Thankyou.
