TOP OF £2300
A good entry of milkers on Tuesday met a more mixed trade with buyers being particularly choosy.
Top call went to Andrew Bunting at £2300 for an Attico Red daughter giving 30kg. She went to Andrew Hulme of Basford. He also showed the top priced cow, a second calver giving 36kg. She made £2180 to a regular purchaser.
Heifers from the Broomhouse Herd of Messrs Easom reached £2120 and £2100 with Edward and Diane Bennett of Whiston also seeing their Heifer reach £2120.
Heifer calves peaked at £410 for a very pretty pedigree Shorthorn heifer calf from the Norbury family of Holmes Chapel with black and whites to £260.
Stock bulls reached £2500 for a pedigree Limousin, with Simmentals to £2200.
