Kirkby Stephen Luke Fair Sale of Continental Store Cattle

15th October 2012

Harrison & Hetherington Ltd held their annual Luke Fair sale of 1,000 store cattle on Monday at Kirkby Stephen Mart.

What was said on many occasions to be one of the best shows of store cattle seen for a long time, especially considering the adverse summer weather conditions, with the cattle truly being a credit to all vendors.

Trade for all types matched the quality of cattle and was staggering.  Bullocks averaged £1083.94 up £116.71 on the year, with heifers averaging £942.65 up £100.68 on the year.  The overall sale average was an incredible £1037.96.

Topping the sale twice at £1540 were a pair of outstanding Limousin cross heifers from Messrs Sowerby, Terry’s Farm and purchased by Messrs Huck, Austwick.

Bullocks topped at £1500 for a tremendous British Blue cross from Mr J Maughan, Ash Garth and purchased by Mr D Barker.
