Comprising: 73 Young Feeding Bulls, 217 Bullocks & Heifers, 2 Feeding Cows & 79 Breeding Cattle.
CCM Auctions had forward 371 head of cattle for their fortnightly sale at Skipton Mart on Wednesday. Young Bulls were again a very keen trade, quality types especially good to sell, with Ben Townsend selling a run of 5 bulls topping at £1520 averaging £1430. The overall selling average was £1062.60.
In the Store cattle section buyers were out in force reacting to an improved prime trade and keen to source short keep cattle, as a response all classes were a shade sharper on the fortnight.
