Dairy Reports

There is no escaping it, this weather as predicted is continuing to impact upon trade within the dairy section, as it is with every other section, with virtually all farmers at the market worrying in some way shape or form about fodder supplies both for now and the rest of the year.

A packed shed of dairies at Leek on Tuesday saw the commercial trade slightly easier as the sunny spell continues to hit grass supplies. However, the Shorthorns sold really well proving yet again leek is the place to sell.

Milkers continue to be a solid trade at Leek despite the on-going weather situation with all qualities and breeds selling well.

A few less buyers about due to the perfect grass gathering weather but still a nice trade with heifers to £2000 and cows to £1880.

 The superb trade at Leek yesterday proved yet again that we have buyers for all breeds and creeds and quality, from your strong Holstein cows to the true British Friesians and cross breds!
