Is this dip in beef price going to continue or will it climb again? Notice pubs are busy tonight, but a but of heat will surely get folk back at the bbq’s again 🤞

Anyone know what cull cows are doing dw?
 
I thought Thirsk fat cattle were ok yesterday similar to last week maybe a penny or two dearer. Not as many in due to the bank holiday maybe helped.
Had cattle in Thirsk Darlington and Northallerton this week and was a little disappointed with Thirsk trade compared to the other two.
Northallerton av 821kg 225p
Darlington av 765kg 242p
Thirsk av 716kg 238p

What pisses me off more is that I was told they were all to heavy at those sort of weights bang on a year ago. Fickle job is the beef trade.

Cattle trade has eased a touch in line with the fat , cattle under 375kg have dropped more than those 400kg+ though. Rearing calves and breeding stock have bucked the trend and have got dearer if anything. Well reared 250kg dairy x weanlings look dear compared to better shaped but rougher looking 320kg suckler types too . I think people have filled up with grazing stores and are staying at home to do field work now, so these smaller things look cheap imo
