PRIME CATTLE - Auctioneer: Charles Hollis
Good trade all round! More cattle about – good trade. 60 OTMs averaged 123p/kg, considerably higher than five markets out of the local group of six, but they had a very, very minimal entry and more beef cows and still only 3p a kg higher.
In the clean cattle there were more about; considerably better trade than any of the 6 markets and lambs were also dearer than the local markets. A special highlight in the steer section was from Richard Naylor and his best steer sold for 1983.14p.
G W and K G Johnson had two exceptionally good beasts in. One made 256p/kg (1687.04) and the other steer made 239p/kg (1651.49). In the Heifer section average not quite up to par – very few specials. Top price 228p from J Wilson & Son, Newton Regis. In the Bulls Stuart Dore’s bull made 228p/kg (1694.04) and Weston’s bull made 227p/kg (1382.43).
