Livestock & Dairy: Bakewell Market
Bakewell Market Report 30-08-2022
A very small market on Tuesday of the Bank Holiday week. Vendors of stock who had supported the Tuesday market were well rewarded with decent prices in all departments.
In the Store cattle sections 23 month old Lim x Steers sold to £1,260 and 22 month old Hfd x to £1,270 a bunch of Lim x steers aged 13-17 mnths made £1,095 evidence that demand for store cattle remains very strong.
In the finished ring there was a limited selection with the best on offer at 285p and £1,501 per head.
Steers averaged 243.9p.
Just 27 OTM cattle, but all well sold with top figures 214p and £1,866 per head. The average at a solid 166.7p
16 calves met a strong demand with bulls to £400 and heifers £250.
In the sheep department 462 lambs sold to 258p and £125.40. Many lambs were short of meat which is hardly surprising in the current circumstances. The SQQ average remained little changed at 233.1p.
Not a bad turnout of 218 cull sheep maintained recent price levels with ewes to £166 to average £75.43 for an entry with a good many plain examples.
