Livestock & Dairy: Leek Market

Leek Market Report 16-08-2022

A very good trade this week for the Pedigree Dairy sale with 50 head stalled and nearly all of them fresh calved cows & heifers. The best quality cattle are a remarkable trade at present with the 5 best over £2,400. The second quality heifers look better values between £1500 – £1800, generally good heifers but lacking the condition and milk of the higher prices.

Getting the top price today was a trio from the Meldamor herd of the Shepherd family at Bakewell. They sold 2 cows at £2580 & £2500 with their heifer selling for £2400. Brian Needham, Heaton also sold 3 today with his top heifers achieving  £2540 and £2340 with his second calf cow making £2400. Other good heifers sold over £2000.

Next week is the Herd Dispersal of Montbeliarde cows (132 Head) From Buxton Partners, Barlaston. Catalogues now available online.
