Storestock

13th September 2019

The sale opened up with store lambs with a strong company of buyers ensuring a competitive trade was seen for all types.  Following this the store cattle section was a little more difficult with the current prime beef trade being less although all buyers present giving the vendor satisfaction.

Leading the sale was a British blue steer from Messrs Crowe, Hall Santon selling for £1085 to David Barker.  Top price in the heifer section was a Limousin from Messrs Roberts, Townend achieving £1055 again purchased by David Barker.
