Notes








STORE CATTLE & CALVES (415)

Another record entry at Norwich which shows the power of teamwork and doing something useful. Food production is becoming more important which means that food producers will also become more important. Lets hope that the people who talk about it at least try to increase their level of intelligence so that they can converse with a cow.
