Stags where very pleased to be instructed to disperse the Charolais suckler herd at South Molton Market on behalf of Messrs W Parker & Son of North Molton.

There were 4 cows and calves which topped at £1200 for a 7yo Charolais x Cow with her 2mo heifer callf at foot. The In-Calf cows topped at £1160 twice, firstly for a 6yo Charolais x Cow (PD 3 months). There was a smashing run of In-Calf heifers which met strong demand selling to £1160 for a June 2018 British Blue x heifers (PD 15 weeks in calf) with Charolais x heifers selling to 1140 for an April 2018 born.

There was also a small run of store cattle on offer which included £810 for 4 17-18mo British Blue x heifers and £750 for 3 14-16mo British Blue steers from Messrs E & S Fewings & Partners, South Molton
