Longtown Store & Breeding Cattle Sale Report
C&D Auction Marts Ltd held their fortnightly sale of 42 store cattle on Tuesday 18th July 2017. A shortage of store cattle due to the good weather, but a busy ringside ensured a flying trade throughout and many more could be sold to advantage. The sale topped at £1,400 for a pair of wonderful Aberdeen Angus bullocks shown by E A Dodd, Roanstree, with their second pen making £1,380. Limousin heifers peaked at £1,290 from another regular customer, CJ & BA Thompson, Edenbanks.
