Quiet show of calves today but a healthy trade seen right through. Best prices were seen for black and whites calves with 6 different buyers bidding away freely for the goods on offer, best sorts from Wellock’s of Seat House were well fought over with their two straight Holstein Bulls at £180 and £160.
