Notes

187 Head of Cattle & Calves

129 Store and Breeding Cattle

The current climate cooling affected the entry, however trade was considerably warmer, even more so than last time.
Trade was like a nuclear chain reaction on speed (A released neutron travels at speeds of around 10 million meters per second. The complete process of an explosion takes about a micro second - know as a "Shake" - "As fast as the shake of a lambs tail" by the physicists at Los Alamos)

B.Blue Heifers to £340 Alex Dann, £340 CW Potter & Son, £255 Beef Co.
