Kington Market Reports 10th April and Thursday 12th April 2018

Tue 10 April 2018

McCartneys report a good entry of store cattle at Kington on Tuesday 10th April 2018 for their April sale.

We had a good quality entry of younger farming cattle which sold to a very strong trade with a number of buyers looking for cattle to graze. There was a good contingent of buyers looking for all types of cattle and we achieved a 100% clearance. The store cattle trade continues to remain firm on all types and particularly the better confirmation types.

The ages of the cattle ranged from 11 to 23 months and weights from 370kg to 600kg. The well-bred and good confirmation cattle which were farm assured and would hit supermarket specs sold to premium prices and these sold up to £2.70ppk for a 13 month old Charolais x steers from SO & JO Alman which made £1030. The cattle sold up to £1340 per head for a 600kg Lim x steer from RT Sankey & Co. The supermarket spec cattle sold to premium prices with an excellent trade throughout the sale on all sorts.
