Wallets Marts Sales Reports For 9th & 10th September 2019

WALLETS MARTS SALES REPORTS 9th 10th SEPTEMBER 2019

Wallets Marts Castle Douglas Limited held their fortnightly sale on Monday 9th September when they sold 171 Store Cattle; 40 OTM Cattle; 5 Breeding Cattle and 1801 Store Sheep.

 

In keeping with the national trend and with further depressed prime cattle prices store cattle continued to prove difficult to cash.  Stronger cattle proved hardest to cash whilst smaller lighter cattle looked a good trade in comparison.  Topping the sale at £1060 was a pen of Simmental cross bullocks from Garrarie, Whithorn.  Top price per kg in the bullock section was 201.3p paid to Messrs Hutchison, Low Mains for a pen of Aberdeen Angus crosses.  Heifers sold to £875 for Charolais crosses from Messrs Borland, Castlehill and to 182.4p for a pen of Limousins from Messrs Parker, Mill of Plunton. Young bulls topped at £740 and 178.1p for Salers from Messrs Donaldson, Poldean.  Overall averages saw bullocks level at 180.8p; heifers 174.4p and young bulls 175.2p.

 

A larger show of OTM cattle met a good demand selling to £1080.70 or 101p for a Charolais bull from Castlegower.  Overage cattle sold to £1073.60 and 162p for Hereford bullocks from Langbarns and £1060.80 and 130p for Charolais heifers from Straith Estates.  Cows topped at £972.16 for a British Blue from Trolane and 136p for an Aberdeen Angus from Slatehouse.  Overall average levelled at £823.75 or 120p per kg.

 

5 Breeding Cattle topped at £990 for an AA Heifer and her heifer calf from Langbarns.

 

Also forward this day were 1801 Store lambs which easily maintained recent high rates.  This sale is proving extremely successful and was attended by a full ringside of bidders.  Topping the sale at £68/ was a pen of Texel crosses from Glentoo.  This was followed at £67 for another pen of Texels from the same home and then £65.50 for Beltex crosses from Fauld O’ Wheat.  Overall sale average was £54.07 made up as follows:

WALLETS MARTS CASTLE DOUGLAS LIMITED

TUESDAY 10th SEPTEMBER 2019

WEEKLY PRIMESTOCK SALE

 

Wallets Marts Castle Douglas Limited on Tuesday 10th September 2019 had forward 1929 prime and cast sheep.

 

1075 prime lambs sold to average 163.03 SQQ 164.01, lambs were a better trade than expected with well fleshed lambs of all weights being the easiest to sell.  With the recent wet weather and wet grass there were a few lambs dirty behind, these lambs would benefit from a tidy up prior to coming on a Tuesday.

 

Top today was £95 and 211.1 for an outstanding charollais lamb from Messrs Cowan, East Lanegate, Parkgate.

 

A huge show of 854 cast sheep were forward and although slightly less money were still easily sold, topping at £109.50 for texels from Dallars Mains, Kilmarnock
