Notes

256  Head of Cattle & Calves

214 Store and Breeding Cattle

A very good entry considering harvest/straw carting is still ongoing in places. New buyers present and old buyers returning created an excellent trade right through.
Yet again no real strength, however as always, quality shone throughout with plenty of pens attracting interest from 10 buyers - all at once !
