Notes

280 Head of Cattle & Calves.

Store and Breeding Cattle

There is a shortage of everything at the moment, as we all know from watching the news and listening to our peers. However, Sherlock advises me that the biggest shortage out there is common sense !!  He is usually right about these things. No shortage of numbers or trade in Norwich though, with the Breeding section experiencing good demand with stock bulls to £3,500 for Miss K L Husk from Dover for a tremendous Limousin x British Blue.
