Rearing Calves & Stirks 291021
On Friday Penrith & District Farmers’ Mart LLP held their fortnightly sale of 165 Rearing Calves and Stirks.
A much larger show of calves and stirks was forward from as far afield as Ayrshire and Middleton-in-Teesdale. The sale topped at £760 per head for a pen of seven Aberdeen Angus cross & Limousin cross bulls, 7-8-months-old from Messrs A & W Johnston, White Fold, purchased by Mr J Field. Heifers from the same home achieved £650 per head for a pen of 3 Limousins, six-months-old, purchased by Mr D Winder.
Messrs Donaldson, Cleater Moor, sold seven-month-old British Blue bulls to £680 per head.
Younger calves topped at £520 per head from Messrs Turnbull, Monks House, for a British Blue bull, ten-weeks-old, purchased by Mr WH Raine, with others from this home closely following at £500.
Messrs AD & FE Elliott, Askrigg Hall, sold six-week-old Fleckvieh bull calves to £260 per head, purchased by Mr P Roddam.
More buyers were forward and several new purchasers were in attendance resulting in a level trade from start to finish, with quality very dear but plainer weathered calves looking good value.
More numbers are required for our next sale on Friday 12th November, with demand for all classes. Please contact Andrew Maughan on 07717611952 for any further information.
