Limousin herd dispersal boosts store cattle auction


A small seasonal number of store cattle at Bishops Castle Auction on July 24 was bolstered by an excellent entry of 23 cows and calves from a pedigree Limousin herd dispersal.
Owned by K. J. and D. M. Burton of Red House Farm, Longville, the herd attracted great interest and cows with calves at foot sold to a high of £1,780. All the cows had been scanned in-calf to a Limousin bull and single in-calf cows sold to £1,100. Following many of his progeny was the pedigree Winnington Limousin stock bull, which sold for £2,400.
Predictably, the prices achieved in the store cattle section were down, with steers averaging 191p per kilo and £855 per head, with a high of £1,275 for a Charolais from A. H. Jones and Son, Acton Scott and 263p per kilo for a pair of 300 kilo Limousins from G. E. Balmer, Snailbeach.
Heifers averaged 184p per kilo and £740 per head to a maximum of £1,070 for a 530 kilo Charolais from M. Hamer, Coricks Rise and 221p per kilo for a 390 kilo Limousin cross from Probert and Probert, Sarn.
Other leading store prices were: Steers: Blonde D’Aquitaine cross: £890 and 209p per kilo for a 425 kilo steer from Messrs Probert and Probert, Lower Hill. Hereford cross: £1,225 for a 735 kilo steer from Messrs A. H. Jones and Son, Acton Scott Farm and 179p per kilo for 610 kilo steer from the same vendor. Charolais cross: £1,275 for an 800 kilo steer from Messrs A. H. Jones and Son and 169p per kilo for two 640 kilo steers from the same vendor. Limousin cross: £860 for a 420 kilo steer from Mr M. W. Hamer, Coricks Rise and 263p per kilo for two 300 kilo steers from Messrs G. E. Balmer and Son, The Farm.
Heifers: Blonde D’Aquitaine cross: £940 and 196p per kilo for a 480 kilo heifer from Messrs Probert and Probert. British Blue cross: £930 for a 515 kilo heifer from Mr A. Bloor, The Whym Farm and 181p per kilo for a 415 kilo heifer from Messrs M. T. Lewis and Son, Woodside Farm. Charolais cross: £1,070 and 202p per kilo for a 530 kilo heifer from Mr M. W. Hamer, Coricks Rise. Limousin cross: £950 for a 455 kilo heifer from Mr M. W. Hamer and 221p per kilo for a 390 kilo heifer from Messrs Probert and Probert.
