Store and Breeding Cattle

A Cash Cow is a metaphor used for a business or a product, which exhibits a strong potential in terms of returns in a low growth market.
Well we had plenty of Cash Cows today !! as the store trade continues to align with the increasing beef returns. Simmental in calf cows sold to £1400 for Shirley Keeler and Limousins to £1350 for Andrew Watts. No strength in the stores, but heifers sold to £1175 for A.Hurn & Partners.
