Straw Sale Strong Trade

We saw a strong trade for high quality crops last week at the annual straw sale at More Farm, Lydham, Bishops Castle.

This year’s sale, which took place on 9 July 2019, included 246.06 acres of straw, divided into conveniently sized lots; 55.87 acres of winter wheat; 50.58 acres of winter Barley; 68.47 acres of Spring Barley and 71.14 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 £68 per acre and a top price of £70 per acre

Spring Barley: Averaging £50 per acre and a top price of £62 per acre

Oilseed Rape: Averaging £34 per acre and a top price of £40 per acre

Winter Barley: Averaging £83 per acre and a top price of £85 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. 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.”
