Sale Report: Friday 13th October 2017 – Great Annual Show & Sale of Lakeland Suckled Calves

On Friday 13th October Mitchells Auction, Cockermouth held the Great Annual show & sale of Lakeland Suckled calves. A huge entry of 889 head was brought before a large ringside of both local and travelled buyers. Following the stormy weather earlier in the week vendors battled floods and road closures to get their stock to the auction for this prestigious sale.

The day commenced with the showing where our judge Mr Willie Timms had 8 classes brought before him. Thanks must go to the days’ sponsors Dodd & Co, Fultons Land Rover, Rickerby Ltd & Surecalf. It was the Limousin heifer from M/s Powley that caught the judge’s eye to be awarded the days Championship & the Fultons Land Rover Trophy followed in reserve by the 1st prize Limousin Steer from S Hardisty & Son, How Hall. The judge backed his decision by purchasing his champion for £1120 and his reserve for £1000.

The day saw a top price of £1305 for a Limousin bred heifer from W Atkinson & Son, Demense.
