Notes

340 Head of Cattle & Calves

Store and Breeding Cattle

There are 2 sides to a coin - on one side we have big increases in food, fertiliser and fuel costs, on the other we have the beef trade - at the moment we think the beef trade is winning !!
No strength today but small and medium types made serious money, so my two good friends Sherlock and the Baron thought.
