Livestock & Dairy: Leek Market
Leek Market Report 24-08-2021
Well what a day! There was not a single spare space in the dairy shed on Tuesday with an entry of 35 commercial cows in addition to the herd on offer. Sincere thanks to all of the staff who helped pull it together enabling us to achieve a really successful day.
The dairy ring was packed with buyers with trade setting off at an electric pace for the commercial entry with 14 of the 33 entered breaking the £2000 barrier.
Topping the day at £2520 twice over were the Easom family from Oakerthorpe with two lovely cows. The first a second calver giving 35kg was clinched by Messrs Bennett of Stoke on Tern with a third calver giving 52kg heading to Messrs Swindell of Chelmorton. The Easoms saw another of their three second calvers reach £2440, £2400 and £2140.
Heifers topped at £2510 from Messrs Johnson of Longnor with two others from the same home making £2500 and £2500. All of the commercial milkers
