Auctioneer’s Report (Will Alexander):The final of this season’s Christmas shows was no disappointment, with a tremendous entry of stirks and a flying trade to match. The presale show was in the capable hands of Barnard Castle farmer Chris Dent. Quality was forward in abundance in every class, but after much deliberation, Frankland Farms took the Champion Rosette with their 1st place senior heifer whilst Colin Bell took the Reserve with his 1st place senior bullock. A busy ringside of 58 active buyers, some operating on numerous accounts, ensured all classes sold to full value. A superb entry of suckler bred heifers with future breeding potential were well received, the top price being achieved by the Champion at £1550, heading home with the judge, others from the Frankland’s consignment regularly £1200-£1300. A quartet of heifers travelling down from D Megahy in the Scottish borders topped at £1380 and averaged £1240. Best bullocks equally well sought after, the Reserve Champion realising £1070, whilst Martin Fishwick and Family realised £1080 & £1110 of their 1st & 2nd prize junior bullocks. Taylor Bros, Skipton also in the prizes, their best heifers £1150 & £1140. Away from the show, strongest cattle up over £1000, nice wintering sorts £800-900, yearling sorts nicely in the £700s. Black and whites well bid for, the strongest coming from Messrs Lamont at £850, others in the £700s with some smaller 12m types looking well sold in £500s. A few more bulls on offer today the strongest to £880 from JM&ED Hutchinson, Pott Yeats and FW Horner & Son, Redmire, other stronger and smart types in the £800s, with the next draw in the late £600s.
