Market Report

 

Saturday 16th May 2020

Auctioneers: Keith Rose, Philip Dale & Tim Webster.

Notes

294 Head of Cattle & Calves

246 Store & Breeding Cattle.

The first sale post lockdown was a great success and while sellers could not stay and watch their stock sold, we would suggest that most were pleased with the days trading.
An excellent entry, variable in quality at times, met a fantastic trade. No strength forward but nice cattle traded to exceed vendors expectations by quite a lot in places.
