Notes








STORE CATTLE & CALVES (381)

For the time of year, this was a great entry. Trade was again very good and followed the national trend of being easier for the younger cattle, especially lean ones, whilst the stronger, warmer cattle are dear. Agriculuture is one of only a few avenues in this country to create wealth. The idiots who talk a lot need to be careful what they wish for.
