Strong trade for top quality crops

Strong Trade for Top Quality Crops
Roger Parry and Partners saw a strong trade for high quality crops earlier this week at the annual straw sale at More Farm, Lydham, Bishops Castle.

This year’s sale, which took place on 11 July 2017, included 253.37 acres of straw; 50.68 acres of winter wheat; 67.22 acres of winter Barley; 69.68 acres of Spring Barley and 66.19 acres of Oil Seed Rape. Roger Parry & Partners managed the sale on behalf of the More Farm Partnership.

With a particularly high standard of crops for this season, there was a lot of interest and a high turnout of buyers. Trade was very strong with the following results:

Winter Wheat: Averaging £71.50 per acre and a top price of £73 per acre

Spring Barley: Averaging £75.3 per acre and a top price of £78 per acre

Oilseed Rape: Averaging £47 per acre and a top price of £49 per acre

Winter Barley: Averaging £82 per acre and a top price of £86 per acre

Roger Parry FRICS, senior Partner and the auctioneer for the sale said, “There have been varied results this year in the straw trade with results as low as £30 per acre. The More Farm straw auction has shown that for top quality crops there is still a strong trade, and the vendors were delighted with the outcome of the sale. There is still a strong demand for straw, please contact one of our offices should you be looking to buy or sell.”
