Store & Breeding Cattle, Store Sheep | Friday 9th November 2018

Store Cattle

Hexham & Northern Marts at their weekly sale offered an entry of 438 head of store cattle which peaked at £1390 for a superb 18 month old British Blue cross steer from local producer and noted breeder of shapely continental cross bred cattle Michael Pickworth, Dotland Park, Hexham.

The same consignor also topped the heifer rankings with two cracking heifers at the same age which may well be put to the bull in future and these sold for £1300 each.

As reported throughout the ‘back-end’ sales season the best of each consignment continues to sell well however poorly thriven or weathered cattle are harder to place and the gap between these two distinct classes appears to be widening.

Entries are invited for next week’s sale which will include the second special ‘Bellingham’ sale for spring born suckled calves as well as the monthly special sale for native breed cattle.

Breeding Cattle

A useful offering of Beef breeding cattle were also catalogued on this day which included the annual prize show and sale of native and hill type breeding cattle. The Show was kindly sponsored by Tynedale Insurance and judged by coquet valley based stockmen Messrs Robson & Sons, Hepple Whitefield who made their awards as follows;

Prize Show

Best Native Heifer or Cow with Calf at Foot

1st   Mirlaw House – Angus Heifer & Steer Calf
2nd  Mirlaw House – Hereford Heifer & Heifer Calf

Best Native Incalf Heifer or Cow

1s t Colwell Demesne – Angus In Calf Heifer
2nd Low Chesterhope - Luing In Calf Heifer

With weather having taken an obvious turn for the worse as we enter November herdmasters’ thoughts are now primarily concerned with winter housing, fodder and bedding stockpiles with the most prudent keen to avoid any unnecessary ‘passengers’ this winter.  This being the case it was only the best outfits selling beyond or in-line with vendor’s expectations and, as with the store cattle entry – any lesser types looked value for money.

Store Cattle

Hexham & Northern Marts at their weekly sale of store cattle offered a sound entry of 354 head and saw both continental cross and native breed steers peak at £1295, the first a strong Limousin cross at 20 months from Matt Findlay, Hallington High with another Angus cross bullock at 18 months from Messrs Watmore, Holystone Estate realising the same figure.

With a smaller show presented a reduced company were at the ringside and trade was easier in general however continuing the theme seen throughout summer the best of each offering sold well with secondary, leaner sorts realising lesser values.

The aforementioned Holystone Estate brought forward another great run of twenty five well-bred Angus steers and as with the leading consignment from the same home last week these too sold well for the Coquetdale based producers to return an average of £1172 throughout.

A hefty packet of Charolais cross bred steers at 15-16 months of age sold well for James Herdman, Edlingham Newtown, Alnwick which peaked at £1280 and averaged £1122 for twenty sold, the majority of which went to return purchasers keen to secure some of the trademark quality types on offer.

Messrs Gibson, Thornton Tower, Newbrough made the short journey along the Tyne Valley and were well rewarded on the day for a smart load of Limousin cross steers and heifers at 11 months old which peaked at £1110 and £935 respectively, averaging £889 for thirteen cattle sold under one year of age.

The auctioneers would be delighted to advise on the best route to market for cattle yet to be sold and can be contacted at the Mart Offices on 01434 605444 with entries for next weeks sale invited by 10.30am on Monday 5th November.
