Store Cattle & Sheep | Friday 19th June 2020

Store Cattle

Hexham & Northern Marts held their weekly sale of store cattle and offered a good entry for the time of year of 210 catalogued head which included a number of native breeds for the monthly special sale of such sorts.

Cattle once again looked a very strong trade which was buoyed on, in part by some exceptional consignments of quality from across the region.   The sale peaked at £1330 for a big Simmental cross bullock from The Walker Bros, Satley, at 20 months. The well-known County Durham based cattlemen also sold a Hereford cross steer at the same age for £1200 however the dearest native beast on the day was a superb Angus heifer from Hexhamshire purveyor of the black breed; Dennis Burn, Aydonshield who saw his pen leader sell for £1295 at 22 months to Tony Green, East Barnwell for his Penshaw Farm Shop Bespoke Butchery Counter.

The leading consignment of the day was undoubtedly that from The Browell Family, Quarry House who came forward with 14 simply outstanding cattle at 14 months of age which typified the pinnacle of quality available through the Hexham ring on a regular basis.  With each animal through the ring as good as the last brothers George & John Browell were justly rewarded for their efforts in the use of hybrid cross breeding from the best of Limousin and British Blue genetics and saw both steers and heifers peak at £1290 to average £1236 for six and eight sold respectively.

Well-bred heifers from both County Durham and Cumbria also sold well on the day with Limousin yearling types selling to £1235 from Alistair Ward, Rogerley Hall, Weardale and to £1230 from George Famelton, Horseholme, Gilsland. Perhaps the highest bred animal in terms of altitude was the yearling Limmy cross steer brought down from Tarset to Hexham by Robert Walton, Gleedlee which sold late in the day for £1210 to the delight of the North-Tyne based producer.

Native breed cattle continue to sell well at Hexham and of course the Angus continues to dominate with several yearlings selling in excess of four figures.  Roger Rutherford, Low Eshells, Hexhamshire sold his best Angus steer for £1080 whilst Neil Armstrong, Ricknall Mill, Newton Aycliffe sold a nice run of twenty that topped with a heifer at £1070.

Entries for the next week sale are both encouraged and invited to take advantage of current levels.

Store & Breeding Cattle with Store Sheep | Friday 12th June 2020

Store Cattle

Hexham & Northern Marts at their weekly sale of store cattle offered a smaller entry of 243 catalogued head and despite a smaller company round the ringside and a more mixed show than seen previously trade was maintained at recent levels.

The sale peaked at £1330 for a big, proud Limousin cross steer from Messrs Forster, Lowes Fell, Hexham at 18 months with another following closely behind at £1315 for the second week from George Brown, Old Hall, Langley Moor.

The leading heifer was a superb example from regular consignors to the Hexham ring Willie and Mark Longlands, Rusheylaw, Birtley and the father and son team were rewarded to the tune of £1305 for their pen leader at only 14 months of age.

The highest grossing native animal was a hefty Angus cross bullock from Messrs Johnson, High Fotherley which scaled to £1300 and one of the highlights of the sale was the consignment of 22 Angus cross steers from Chris & Janet Watmore, Holystone Estate who enjoyed £1250 for their dearest bullock at 22 months whilst the remainder all at 15-16 months topped at £1160 and averaged a well-deserved £1108 throughout for the Coquet Valley based family farmed estate.

Another run of note was yet another smart packet of well-bred yearling Limousin cross cattle brought to the Hexham ring from Messrs Walton, Greyside who had steers peak at £1050 and heifers at £1035 to average a worthy £993 for nine of each class.  

A colder, wetter spell of weather may well freshen pastures as ‘flaming’ June presses on however as always summer farming tasks will take precedence which may well affect numbers of cattle and purchasers at the ringside.  The auctioneers are keen to hear from any producers with cattle yet to sell and would invite entries to the Mart Offices on 01434 605444.

Store Cattle & Sheep | Friday 5th June 2020

Store Cattle

Hexham & Northern Marts held their first sale of store cattle in the month of June and were pleased to catalogue a considerable entry of 336 cattle for the time of year.  Presented to an eager company round the ringside trade lifted yet again on the week and reflected the rise in demand for the finished product as a number of local and national catering outlets re-open following the easing of lockdown restrictions.

The highlight of the sale was the annual consignment from The Carruthers family, Silloans Farm which lies high in the inhospitable hills of the Otterburn Military Ranges and once again the well-bred Limousin and Limousin cross cattle attracted a deal of interest.  A smart and hefty packet of pure bred Young Bulls saw the top of the trade on the day and peaked at £1520 for the best of the offering with another at £1420 averaging £1289 for ten sold. Steers from the same home peaked at £1190 twice and Heifer sisters sold to a worthy £1280 with 32 cattle from 10-15 months of age averaging £1180 for the Redesdale based family.

A small but smart number of older, forward cattle were presented and these, particularly heavier types saw a noticeable lift on the week with steers peaking at £1370 for a hefty Limmy bullock at 22 months from George Brown, Old Hall, Durham and a super shapely Limousin heifer from Messrs Jackson, Midgeholm selling to £1350.

Charolais bred cattle were in the hottest demand perhaps seen for a few weeks with a nice run from Walker Bros, Satley peaking at £1320; their six returning at £1292 throughout, whilst the first of the spring offering from Agnes & James Sinton, White House, Birtley saw a bullock to £1295 and their heifers peak at £1280.

All classes were indeed dearer and quality heifers were in greatest demand with highlights including a smart Limousin at 18 months from Geoff & Ian Temple, Ingoe Low Hall selling to £1290 and a smart packet of four from Messrs Dixon, Middle Heads, Consett peaking at £1260 to average a deserved £1200.

Angus heifers peaked at £1125 for a well-bred pen of three from the Johnston Family, High Fotherley whilst the youngest class of cattle; those at ten months and younger peaked at £1050 for a Limousin cross steer from Ian Potts, Redburn, Weardale whilst heifers topped at £1020 from Steven & Ollie Richardson, Prospect Grange, Corbridge.

With a splash of moisture freshening pastures and certainly lifting spirits amongst consignors and purchasers alike demand for cattle at this centre shows no sign of easing and the auctioneers would urge any breeders with cattle yet to be sold to consider the Hexham ring as their first choice to maximise returns. Entries for the sale next week are invited and should be with auctioneers by 10.30am on Monday 8th June.
