Article excerpt

HEXHAM June 7 Store Cattle Hexham & Northern Marts offered a catalogued entry of 150 head of store cattle at their weekly sale. A reduced entry as is usual at this time of year was met by a reduced ringside of buyers; as is also usual at this time of year with grassland and other operations taking precedence.

The sale peaked at PS1290 for a strong Angus cross bullock, by a registered sire, at 20 months of age from David Johnson, Blackhalls, with a Limmy cross at the same age selling to PS1240 from Geoff Ogle, Blackburn. Older heifers peaked PS1190 for a smart red Limousin cross from Brian Charlton, East Newham who followed with another at PS1165.

Younger cattle remained sought after and peaked at PS1140 for an Angus cross from regular consignors, Messrs Faill, Hedley West whilst Messrs Carruthers, Silloans came forward with a trademark batch of well-bred Limousin and Limousin cross stores that peaked at PS1125 for a smart steer at 12 months.

Heifers in this bracket peaked at PS1105 for a sleek, black British Blue cross at just ten months of age from Colleen MacDonald, Light Birks.

Buyers remain keen for cattle showing the potential to go on and perform whilst trade for secondary types is becoming increasingly selective.
