Notes

156 Head of Cattle & Calves.

Store and Breeding Cattle

A very excitable little trade with warmish weather (not hot enought yet) very heavy downpours and thunderous prices. It appears that the cattle trade, from the beef end to the farming end is numbers fed at the moment - no doubt helped by the football teams progression. Many experts warned us of a collapse in prices after Brexit and Covid. They are now telling us how good it is going to be - should we be aware ?
