Organic Prime Beef Cattle
With a marked improvement in the weather and grass now abundant the stream of cattle coming forward has started to slow, with the sunshine and a world cup there is the expectation that demand would have increased, this however has not materialised, perhaps the consumer is waiting to see how the 3 lions do before arranging too many BBQ’s?
Organic Cull Cows
The cull cow trade remains exceptional and although levels of supply are tight we haven’t seen the price leap forward, remaining at a very high level providing producers with a good return.
Organic Prime Lamb
With some processors having stopped killing Hoggets and moving on to New Season Lambs the price has remained very strong due to a shortage in numbers, particularly of Organic New Season and has been helped by the continued demand from the consumer.

The demand for organic store cattle to graze continues to be strong despite a disappointing finished price. After a late spring, grass has suddenly burst into growth and demand is reflecting that. Bigger cattle to finish in the summer months are also in demand.
We also have demand for organic dairy cattle in all areas. David Bostock manages the organic dairy stock and can be contacted through the office on 01829 730580 or mobile 07734 808050
