Notes

233 Head of Cattle & Calve

Store and Breeding Cattle

An end of season type of entry, generally lacking in quality and no outstanding sorts forward - However there were plenty of buyers after them which resulted in a very fast trade. Even Sherlock commented that Norwich has bucked the trend again with more demand for plainer types
