Our fortnightly sale of store sheep and store cattle was conducted with a strong ringside of buyers from a handful of counties, Cumbria, Yorkshire, County Durham, Lancashire and Dumfriesshire.

Confidence continues in sheep with store hoggs proving to be much sharper on the fortnight.

Store cattle section once again breathes fresh air into the strength of Mitchells Auction . Yearling types sold to higher rates again, WITH MOST QUOTING THEM £50 UP.

Stirks and feeding bulls were very well cashed to numerous buyers looking to replenish their sold forward stores.
