Livestock Sales Reports - Tiree

Saturday 1st November 2014

United Auctions held their annual late autumn sale of 698 all classes’ cattle at Tiree Auction Mart.  A good offering of stock in all ages was presented to a good turnout of mainland buyers.  Bullocks sold to average £803.69 or 217.81pence per kilo (£792.62 or 221.07 last year). Heifers sold to average £694.51 or 209.86 pence per kilo (£689.36 or 209.56 last year).  Younger aged cattle easily maintained last year’s values with most quality consignments recording a rise on the year whilst older cattle were easier on the year which is in keeping with current trends caused by the drop in values for finished cattle.  Bullocks sold to a top of £1320 for Limousin crosses from Heylipol Farm and 323 pence per kilo for Limousin crosses from G Campbell, Jnr, Garaphail.  Heifers sold to a top of £1290 for Charolais crosses from Heylipol Farm and 281 pence per kilo for Aberdeen Angus crosses from Parkhouse.
