Market Report


Saturday 11th May 2024

Auctioneers: Philip Dale & Tim Webster.



East Anglia has the best of it at the moment, both in terms of weather and we believe the cattle trade. All hands to the pumps today, with a Cow and Calf Dispersal, the Paul Davis Memorial Trophy and a tremendous show of store cattle. Trade on all fronts was super duper, with new and old buyers keen to secure stock for turnout and feeding.

The Paul Davis Memorial Trophy went to JJ Lawrence & Son, Thetford, with a tremendous Simmental x Cow with Twin Limousin Calves. A shout out to the Judge, Cliff Colman, for carrying out what can be an unenviable task exceedingly well. At sale time there was lots of competition, with the final bid belonging to Messer JB Dring & Son at £3600, who also purchased the 2nd Prize outfit, a British Blue x Cow with Limousin Bull Calf from A Hodge , Pulham Market for £2600.
As previously mentioned, the Dispersal for Colin Reeve was a huge success. We are hoping that this does not encourage too many others to sell up, or we will have nothing left to sell !!
The main headline was that he had 22 outfits over £2,000 with an average over £1,800

(24) Calves

A short seasonal show was a flyer. Alex Dann topped this week with Blues to £432, £428, £425, £408 closely followed by CW Potter with Blues to £395. Angus sold to £330, with CB & SC Gapp reaching £310. Herefords from Alex Dann reached a mighty £298
