Notes

224 Head of Cattle & Calves

178 Store and Breeding Cattle

An excellent entry for little old Norwich and while some parts of the country reported similar trades, we are not !!
At present, everything is good in the Beef, Lamb and Arable Sectors, apart from the obvious. However, is there anything lurking round the corner !!
Still no real strength however, our smaller ones sold to £1185 for Pat Key and £1180 for Josh Fryett.
