Breeding ewes continue to sell well

The trade from the first sale attracted a larger entry of ewes and with that came more buyers. As the season moves on the demand for rams will increase and this was seen in only the second sale of the year. Top price was 325gns for a Charolais yearling from Davies, Brynygroes Fawr. Rams averaged £260. More whitefaced ewes and a greater mix of quality saw a more varied trade on the day but the first quality yearlings were selling well. Texel X topped the day again at £146 from Jones, Bromebyd who also sold for £134 followed by Suffolk yearlings from Jenkins, Lower House at £129 who also sold a pen of Mule X yearlings at £126. A pen of Welsh yearlings sold for £65 and aged ewes also sold well with a top of £94.Published: 13th July 2015

Sell Live and Thrive

Lambs take a big slump in the space of 7 days and in our case in 24 hours. Monday saw an average of 152ppk in our Cardigan Mart, 15p down on the previous week, yet Whitland was down to 138ppk throughout. So it’s not just the dairy section suffering at the moment and one of the main commentaries were that not only were deadweight outlets dropping prices but weren’t even accepting lambs. “You just can’t get them in anywhere” was one farmer’s grievance. So we must reiterate that never did any livestock market say we don’t want or we can’t take your stock. If the direct supply was reduced they would soon be shouting for lambs and where better to sell then, than in the live ring where they have no choice but to compete. It would surely be a better situation to hear buyers grumble that they “just can’t get the lambs” than how it is currently. “Sell Live and Thrive”!! A motto for all producers to consider at these difficult times!!Published: 1st July 2015

Calf Producers

Please note that it is now important to record the calf’s sire’s details on the Calf Registration form for BCMS and include the sire’s name on the passport. This is especially relevant for beef breeds that command a premium at slaughter, e.g. Aberdeen Angus. Some outlets will only purchase Aberdeen Angus x calves if this information is on the passport. It is only a little extra work at registration, and hopefully it will result in vendors continuing to receive good prices for their stock. Help us to help you by making the effort now and in the future. The same will apply for producers who rear calves to sell as stores/finished cattle. Get in to the habit and it will become second nature.
