OTM, STORE & BREEDING CATTLE

MONDAY 8th OCTOBER 2018

 

Wallets Marts Castle Douglas Limited held their fortnightly store and OTM sale in conjunction with their October Breeding Cattle Sale on Monday 8th October 2018.

 

A much plainer show of 53 OTM cattle met a selective trade with well fleshed cows still being the easiest to sell.  Topping the trade at £1165.80 was an Aberdeen Angus cow from Messrs Lindsay, Culnaightrie.  Top price per kg in the cow section was 138p paid again to Messrs Lindsay, Culnaightrie for another AA cow.  Cast bulls made to 126p and £1030.68 for a Limousin cross from Larglea.  Overall sale average levelled at 102.27p per kg or £607.47.

 

A small select show of 14 Store cattle easily found new homes selling to £1080 for a Charolais bullock from Cogarth.  Charolais heifers from the same home sold to £990.  Bullocks averaged 198.82p whilst heifers levelled at 195.3p.

 

170 head of breeding animals were forward and sold at the annual October sale of breeding cattle.  Trade was better than most had anticipated greatly helped by a full ringside of bidders.  Topping the trade at £2150 was a Limousin heifer with a Limousin bull calf at foot from Messrs Fisher, Flathill.  The Flathill consignment of 14 heifers and calves averaged £1795.  9 heifers and calves from Garmartin topped at £1980 and averaged £1701.  7 heifers and calves from Derrie, Port William sold to £1900 and averaged £1787.  A feature of the sale was the part dispersal of the Dalhanna herd of AAX and SalersX cows with springborn Charolais calves at foot.  The cows ranged from 6 years to 14 years old and topped at £2000 to average £1282.  Also forward was the dispersal of breeding cattle from Mrs Repton, Auchencairn which topped at £1100 for a Galloway X Cow and Galloway bull calf.
