Rearing Calves & Stirks 261121
On Friday Penrith & District Farmers’ Mart LLP held their fortnightly sale of 87 Rearing Calves and Stirks.
A smaller offering of calves and stirks was forward and witnessed a sharp trade, especially for strong 6-10-month-old cattle. The sale topped at £810 for a ten-month-old Charolais bull stirk from Mr K Hunt, Braithwaite Shields, purchased by Mr J Field.
Messrs J & B Donald & Son, Lamonby Hall, sold a pen of 4 good square British Blue bullocks, nine-months-old, to £795. Heifers from this home achieved £690.
A pen of 3 thick-bred suckler Aberdeen Angus cross bullocks achieved £660 from Messrs JH & E Ivinson, Plumpton Foot.
Young calves were in short supply with Messrs Turnbull, Monks House, selling nine-week-old British Blue heifers to £420, purchased by Mr G Fisher. Freshly born British Blue bull calves, three-weeks-old, achieved £355 from Messrs AD & FE Elliott, Askrigg Hall.
Black & Whites topped at £530 for a six-month-old bullock from Messrs J & AG Nicholson, Causeway Foot Farm, although younger types would be easier on the fortnight.
Our next sale is the Christmas show and sale on Friday 10th December, show at 9.30am and sale at 10am. Please contact Andrew Maughan on 07717611952 for any further information.
