‘A change in the weather but not in the trade.’
The ring is king as far as store cattle are concerned with the flying trade continuing at Lockerbie Auction Mart’s fortnightly sale on Tuesday. A smaller more mixed show of cattle was met once again with a healthy ringside of eager buyers. 12-month-old Limousin heifers sold up to £1120 from Messrs Reid, Kirkburn while younger British Blue heifers were up to 290ppk at 8 months old from Mr Robson, Laverockhall. The same good farming also had British Blue bullocks at 292ppk and 272ppk. Bullocks topped at £1160 for an Aberdeen Angus from Messrs More, Maxwellbank who had another selling for £1120 at only 10 months old. 9-month-old Charolais bullocks sold up to 266ppk from Andrew Reid, Glendearg and Limousin bullocks were up to 265ppk from Messrs McGarva, Barwhanny.
Another positive sale with yet more encouraging signs for farmers leading into our April Fair Day Sale which is in two weeks’ time on the 13th April. Please advise entries to the Auctioneers.
