Beef Breeding 211122
On Monday Penrith & District Farmers’ Mart LLP held a special sale of Breeding Cattle.
A very genuine offering of cows and calves were forward from Mr J Mattinson, Green Farm, Bassenthwaite, to a very busy ringside of prospective buyers, this resulted in a bonanza of a trade.
The sale topped at £2680 for a young Limousin cow with a Limousin heifer calf at foot, purchased by Messrs PD & J Johnson, Herdship Farm. A 7-year-old British Blue cow with an 8-week-old Limousin bullock calf at foot realised £2020.
The dearest section by far, which amazed so many customers, were the in-calf cows which topped at £1900 for a 6-year-old Limousin X cow, in-calf to a British Blue. This consignment of calving cows averaged £1675.
