Rearing Calves to £440

B&W av £82.45 Cont av £348 Native av £226

Calves in demand today with a lot of straight calves making some serious prices, with the likes of Moons of Wigglesworth having a flyer with continental calves and black and whites continuing on an upward trend with 95% of today’s calves under 45 days old proves how strong prices were compared to other avenues of sale.

Strong trade expected for continental and native calves next week with extra buyers attending, black and calves set to maintain their course.
