Notes

 235 Head of Cattle & Calves

193 Store Cattle.

What a good start to the new decade. A round of applause to the producers and luckily there were 7 extra buyers/potential buyers to keep everyone keen and prices higher than buyers wanted to pay. Top price went to  M. Wyand with an in calf Hereford Cow at £1050. Lincoln Red Cows, in calf, from the same vendor reached £870 and £860. Some of the store cattle were 'on fire' and while there was no real strength, Simmental x Steers 14mo topped at £920 for R. Giles
