The bull trade looks way better than Darlo, I know the lads that topped Darlington bulls this week and their bulls are top notch, as good as anything in Thirsk but the prices aren't. The fact pearsons aren't buying out of Darlington but out of Thirsk must be pushing the job on in Yorkshire.
I really hope dfam can get on top of this and catch up. Having said that the clean job seems to be flying in Darlo.
A lot of faithful Darlo clean and bullsellers are turning up in Northallerton though, there and Thirsk are getting better top prices week after week, gross and ppk.They’ve been hit hard recently. The trouble is the report shows the top price but nobody is there to see the sharp knocks etc. On average people can’t be happy or they wouldn’t be moving

There’s a few gone back to Darlington now tho...it’s more the payment terms which people weren’t pleased with...payment terms will go back to how they were at some point

Store cattle trade today at Sedge had to be seen to be believed, just about the dearest store trade ever seen at the centre for many years if not ever!

Heifers/ Angus and Fri cattle trading at exceptional money!

On the ewe breeding sale on Thurs at Sedge, trade was just mental and from what I was told today prices across the board just about broke all records and far exceeded vendors expectations!

Do you ever post a bad trade at Sedgemoor ?
Those auctioneers must be the Carlsberg of livestock markets .

“Cattle are fairly comfortable when the ambient temperature is between 15°C and 25°C over the summer months but if the thermometer rises significantly, production performance will start to suffer,” warns Jacob Lakin from Azelis Animal Nutrition.

“This is because both a milk production and growing beef animal will start to divert energy away from production performance towards keeping cool. You’ll notice if a cow is struggling during a summer heatwave because she will start to salivate heavily and pant...
