Beef / Lamb & Pig Price Tracker

There’s plenty of auctioneers can sell as many an hour and can be understood perfectly well. I mean talking slower not selling slower. Stephen Aitken could push 90 cows an hour through Darlington and I could always hear him clearly, and he was Scottish.He was some auctioneer.
There was an auctioneer at Carlisle 30 or so years ago could sell 200 per hour in days they got 1500 fat cattle a week

I saw some jersey bulls in Drayton the other week, god they were crap. £35-£40 each! 😳 I wouldn’t have given you the price of a cartridge for them! It was a farmer buying them so god knows what the idea is? Killing buyers were bidding £10-20
Longtown fat sheep ring buzzing today.Alot of lambs in and plenty buyers.Seemed a good trade. Carlisle H @ H directors should have a look in to see how a fat sheep ring should look like.
 
Just pointing out a fact . 😊😊. It's often the buyers that slow a market down . Most auctioneers know what the livestock is worth as soon as it comes in the ring . The 2 selling in Hfd are never very far wrong .
Some auctioneers aren’t strong enough for the buyers. A strong auctioneer who knows their beans with some tempo keeps the job rattling on.

Nothing better than selling when you have a good auctioneer. Chris Voyce at Cirencester can’t half rattle through sheep, doesn’t let the buyers have time to think about it and causes a buying frenzy because people done want to miss out.

I hear it’s a bit different now but it’s easy to rattle through them when your only knocking down to one buyer.:whistle:
