November 11, 2016 Increased Demand for Charolais in Welshpool

More Charolais bulls were sold for a higher average price in Welshpool on Thursday 10th November than at the corresponding sale in the previous year. At the end of the day’s trading 36 bulls were sold to average £3856, an increase of £419 per head with 10 more sold.

Auctioneer Glandon Lewis commented that “Commercial producers underpinned the sale and were willing to pay between 4,000 and 6,000gns for the bull of their choice. This is a reflection of the commercial trade for Charolais bred cattle which are in demand by beef finishers who can exploit their efficient growth to meet the current market specification”.
