Buyers compete for store cattle at Bishops Castle


Buyers from as far away as Leicester and Suffolk competed for the 250 store cattle on offer at Bishops Castle Auction on March 20.
The entry was up compared with the same auction last year and the trade was good for the best cattle. Auctioneers Halls reported that buyers were a little more selective given the temperamental nature of the end beef price, with most major supermarkets currently offering red meat deals.
Overall, steers averaged 225p per kilo and £920 per head with highs of £1,345 for a 600 kilo Limousin from S. and A. V. Richards, Prees Heath and 269p per kilo for a cracking 330 kilo Charolais pair from C. P. Breeze, Plasaduon.
Heifers averaged 214p per kilo and £830 per head with a maximum of £1,150 for a 550 kilo Charolais from D. Edwards and T. H. Cooke of Kempton and 253p per kilo for a single 350 kilo Limousin from J. T. Jones, Tynewydd Cyffin.
A small number of bulls sold to average 236p per kilo and £775 per head, with Halls appealing for more entries to meet demand. Again a consignment from Aston Hall topped the market, with 236p per kilo and 228p per kilo for bunches of Limousins and 231p per kilo for a Limousin from John Corfield of Woodgate.
Two Limousin cows and calves from Mrs Parry of Cil Gwrgan sold for a healthy £1,580 and £1,600 a set.
