BAKEWELL MARKET REPORT
MONDAY 5TH SEPTEMBER
Puddles have been spotted in Derbyshire for the first time in what seems like months and the forecast indicates more to come.
A catch-up market after the Bank Holiday week with 818 cattle and 2,013 sheep on offer
All regular buyers operating and trade good in all sections.
The store and breeding cattle departments was well supported with 473 head on offer including plenty of strong short finish types which sold exceptionally well.
Steers peaked at £,1640 to average £1,065 which gives some indication of the strength of trade.

If you have store cattle to sell and need any advice, give Alastair Sneddon a call on 07973 982441. We are very happy to promote any special entries with advance notice and photographs.

STORE & BREEDING CATTLE – (Auctioneer Alastair Sneddon)
A total of 473 cattle forward in this section with trade solid from start to finish.
Younger cattle harder to sell with buyers clearly taking into consideration the costs for the next 12 months with no realistic view of what the finished trade might be next year.
Strong, short keep cattle of which we had a fantastic selection a different story altogether with a tremendous trade well demonstrated by the prices later in this report.
