Livestock Sale

Monday 27th June 2022


York Auction Centre had 627 head of stock forward including 225 Cattle, 299 Sheep and 103 pigs at their weekly sale of Prime stock.



On the back of a falling trade during the week we saw a lighter show of cattle with 129 bulls 84 clean and 12 OTM’s. Most classes of stock were easier to sell than last week except the best bulls which were slightly down.


T H Kilby topped the bull market for the third week running, a brilliant achievement, with a Limousin weighing 582kg at 270p/kg. Black & Whites were a good trade, averaging 210p/kg.


The clean topped at 305p/kg for Limousin steer from W Robshaw & Son weighing 610kg and heifers topped at 302p/kg for Limousin from L Dale & Son, weighing 612kg. Continental steers averaged 276p/kg and continental heifers averaged remarkably the same. The overall average for clean was a very good 261p/kg.


It appears that fleshed Hereford bulls, steers and heifers are a very good trade with a steer making 276p/kg.


Cows remaining a very good trade.
