Market Report

 

Saturday 17th December 2022

Auctioneers: Philip Dale & Tim Webster.

Notes

STORE CATTLE

A small Christmas entry, not helped by the weather, resulted in more buyers than cattle ! and consequently a fast trade. All the big hitters were present and many went home empty handed and will now wait until January.  The beef trade is good at present and this could be the determining factor regarding store prices in the new year.
