The Cumberland & Dumfriesshire Farmers Mart P.L.C. had forward
145 store cattle and 84 breeding cattle at their fortnightly sale at
Longtown on Tuesday 25th May, 2010.
Store cattle - again small grazing cattle met a
buoyant trade but bigger cattle were harder to cash.
Top price of £825
for a Limousin bullock from Thomas Holmes, The Crook and for a Charolais
bullock from J.T. Fleming & Son, Falnash.
Breeding cattle – a
shortage of heifers with calves on offer saw them sell to extreme
high rates, with older cows also selling very well.
