Notes

97 Head of Cattle & Calves

Store and Breeding Cattle

A smaller seasonal entry of stores and calves rewarded those brave enough to send livestock. There was certainly a bite to the trade and buyers could well be right, with the prospect of no store cattle about for 3-4 weeks, deal or no deal, national lockdowns etc etc. Tis the seaon of goodwill !! and we must give a massive thanks to all producers and buyers for their support throughout the year and look forward to more success in 2021.
