Rearing Calves & Stirks 040222
On Friday Penrith & District Farmers’ Mart LLP held their fortnightly sale of 87 Rearing Calves and Stirks.
A slightly smaller show of all classes was forward to plenty of demand around the ringside, the sale topped at £750 for a seven-month-old, suckler-bred Limousin bullock from Messrs AJ & J Fell, Mosedale End, purchased by GT & CA Blezard, Lancaster.
Younger Aberdeen Angus stirks, out of Holstein cows, from Messrs JP Holliday, Clifton Hall, regularly achieved over £450 per head, topping at £510, purchased by Mr B Atkinson.
A smaller show of younger calves was forward, with buyers looking for more strength. A cracking nine-week-old Limousin bull calf achieved £380 from Messrs Wilson, Street Head, purchased by Mr P Bousfield.
All classes are required for our next sale at 10am on Friday 18th February, with buyers looking for stronger weaned bulls and bullocks, please contact Andrew Maughan on 07717611952 to advise entries.
