Auctioneer’s Report: (Greg MacDougall): The largest show of suckled calves forward for some time. A nice show on the whole with a good ringside of both new and returning buyers in attendance. Trade sharper on the year with vendors leaving happy with their day’s trading with some reporting plus £80-£100 on the year. The judging was in the capable hands of Ian Wainwright, Todhall, Fife who awarded the overall Champion to Frankland Farms for the second year in a row with a Limousin x steer later realising £1200 purchased by the judge. Reserve Champion came from the run of quality Simmental and Limousin from Fishwick Farms with a Limousin heifer making £1000 going home with D & L Coar, Darwen. A good bull trade with a consignment from JM & JJ Dawson, Fieldhead topping at £980 with others to £900 to average £783 including heifers. Best bulls in general £830-£900 with lesser end sorts £700+. Undoubtedly a highlight of the sale was the annual consignment of Sim x/ Lim x from Fishwick Farms. All calves shown in good order and keenly bid for by returning customers they averaged £793 (+£121 on 2019). Best steer calves in general £850-£900 with others £700-£800. Smart heifers including those for future breeding purposes were good to sell often £820-£900 with a nice Lim x from Barn Hey Farms, Flookburgh to £905. Commercial heifers £620-£740 depending on the breed. Several native bred calves saw AAx bulls from GR & A Foy to £750 with steers from the same home to £740. Overall, a successful sale with entries invited for the 2nd Sale on 17th November.
