Calves

York does it again with another week of over 100 store and breeding cattle sold with 100% clearance across all sections! 

More buyers than calves this week with some vendors just between calving patterns, but a handful of bull stirks from R Findlay and T Pearson selling to tops of £550 for a BRB X bull. Calves and stirks entered for the coming weeks but plenty can be handled every week! 

In the big ring, a packed out ringside of buyers from near & far saw cattle dearer again on the week! The final consignment of cows & calves from Robin Cornforth sold to a tremendous £1900 for a 2014 born BRB X cow with a super BRB bull calf at foot. All cows forward today met a fantastic trade, but the highlight of the breeding cattle saw R Barnard sell his Pure Limousin 1st calver with a superb bull calf at foot to £2900 to local buyers S & J Houlder. 

Another week with over 90 store cattle penned were once again very good to sell, with S&K Asquith taking the top spot for both steers and heifers with their strong Limousin crosses both selling to £1480. Not far behind were regular vendors the Foulston family who made the trip across the Humber again with their topping Simmental steers selling to £1450 with all steers in the consignment £1430 or better and Brian Basham sold his usual good strong BRB X steers to £1475/ head. 

Mid-term cattle once again sold well with cattle regularly around the £1300 mark with A P & R A Dunn taking the top spot in the category for a super pen of heifers selling to £1350/ head. Smaller summering cattle looked a stronger trade than ever selling to tops of 329.5pp/kg from the Fussey family for two super suckler bred steers, and other summering cattle sold to £1050/ head for a pair of Parthenais heifers from Allanson Ltd.

Not many bulls in today but buyers still out in force and looking to stock up with R Barnard taking the top spot with a Shapely little Limousin selling to £1065 or 300pp/kg, other bulls from M Wills sold to £1010 and a pair of Simmental x from the same home looked very well sold at £945/ head, black and white store bulls from A & A Wake sold to £825/ head. 

Plenty more cattle can be sold every week with some buyers even leaving with empty trailers today! Please call Edward Stephenson or James Kilner to discuss your requirements!
