Notes

255 Head of Cattle & Calves

207 Store and Breeding Cattle

A mighty entry for an East Anglian Market in the middle of harvest. We have to be honest, Several buyers were missing, did it make any difference? Nope !!  A wonderful trade left most vendors extremely happy. The beef trade and cull cow market appears very strong and stable, this will underpin the cattle prices.  Potential uppers include cheap barley and people staying in the uk. Potential downers include grass, straw and gum flappers.
Again no real strength ( I dont know why - we deserve some ), however anything nice was very dear with bigger ones to £1105 for 16mo A. Angus from D & S Livestock and little ones to £790 for 5mo Charolais Steers from MJ Peck.
