Market Report

 

Saturday 8th February 2020

Auctioneers: Keith Rose, Philip Dale & Tim Webster.

Notes

 222 Head of Cattle & Calves

191 Store & Breeding Cattle.

Slightly smaller show, which was mixed in terms of quality, met a dearer trade, even than the last market.
Quality cattle very sought after and second rate sorts an improved trade with more bidders. Everything is on the up at the moment and it has to be remembered that beef is a very strong product !
