Friday 22nd May 2020 - Jonny Skelton May Sale

22nd May 2020

A pleasing entry of 650 store cattle was forward for the “Jonny Skelton” May sale.  A predominately younger entry attracted a large ringside of buyers ensuring the trade was flying suppressing all expectations.  The drop and go system proved to be a success with all classes easily sold.

The day’s top price of £1305 was achieved for a Limousin steer from TB Stamper, Harrot Hill.  Heifers topped at £1245 for a Limousin from Messrs Lister, Foxhouses.

Bulls sold to a high of £1155 for a pure Limousin from R Wilkinson & R Tennant, Gatesgarth Farm.

Vendors are encouraged to take advantage of present trading conditions.  Next fortnightly sale on Friday 5th June, please advise entries to the office on 01900 822016.
