We continue to move record numbers of organic store cattle and are still looking for more supplies to meet demand. The strongest demand is for the better quality cattle, particularly from continentals out of native bred cows, Hereford, Angus, South Devon’s etc.
Forage supplies seem plentiful as we go into the winter months but straw availability is short and expensive. Hard feed i.e. barley is also at higher levels than last year. In spite of these factors and with a good finished price, prospects for organic store cattle suppliers and buyers are good.
We have managed this autumn to place a number of organic TB restricted cattle into organic Approved Finishing Units (AFU’s). If you are unfortunate enough to go down with TB please give us a ring as we should be able to move your stock at reasonable returns.
Looking forward we predict the demand for store cattle to continue in to the spring.
Please contact us with your availability and if you are a buyer, your requirements.
