REPORT FOR THE STORE CATTLE THURSDAY 11TH OCTOBER 2018 STORE CATTLEA pleasing Catalogue entry of 300 Store Cattle with a wide variety of breeds, ages and quality on offer. There really was something for everyone! We were concerned as to how many Buyers were going to appear, as there have been less around over the last couple of weeks. Thankfully our fears were unfounded as there were 27 buyers around the ring and the trade was good, especially in view of the current economic climate and the price of feed and bedding. There were no Feeding Bulls forward this week, so we were straight into the Store Cattle, of which there were 271 head that turned up, with a few not forward for various reasons. 116 Steers sold to an overall average of 189 p/kilo and £932 a head. They sold from 86p/kilo to 234.4 p/kilo and from £370 a head up to £1300 a head. The demand was greatest for the bigger Steers and the best quality smaller ones. There were some good strong Steers which sold to a top of £1305 for a Limousin Steer weighing 695 kilos at 19 months and presented by Katherine Croft.
