At CCM Auctions final Store Cattle Sale of the year there was a decent entry given the proximity to the christmas break. Bulls were a mainly younger smaller selection but spirited bidding from the ringside ensured a fast selling trade and prices equally in line or better than of late. Store Bullocks were a nice selection of mainly stronger cattle which is reflected in the average of £1058 for all bullocks sold. Heifers were more varied in quality, and strong types and smart ones sold really well.
