Market Report

 

Saturday 11th July 2020

Auctioneers: Philip Dale & Tim Webster.

Notes

285  Head of Cattle & Calves

238 Store and Breeding Cattle

Another good day at the office. This was our first sale with our new information screen which was very kindly donated by the former shareholder Mr. William Oram and was well received by the congregation. The standard of cattle was excellent in places, many buyers could not understand why they were having to pay so much, but they still went home happy. As always, quality of all sizes was in demand, with extra competition for strong cattle. Cows and Calves were on fire and store cattle were even dearer than the previous market.
