Thursday 23rd June: Thursday Lunchtime Sheep Sale
74 Barren, OTM and Feeding Cows Overall Average 190.1p or £1281
(Auctioneer Oliver Hiles)
A better entry of cows this week and some super quality about and a fantastic average. 30 Cows today topped £2/kilo and selling to a high of 239p (£1931) for a Blue x (former show calf) from Michael and Ellie Wynne, Snitterton. Plenty more continental 217-230p with Hereford up to 216p. I fully accept that cows are dear everywhere, but while they are at this price in the market you won’t find a better place to sell them. If you have not sold any at Bakewell for a while, give me a call on 07801 530899 and I would be happy to give a no obligation confidential opinion of what could be achieved in the market at Bakewell.
