MARKET REPORT - WEDNESDAY 16TH JULY

Fortnightly Sale of Young Feeding Bulls, Store Bullocks & Heifers, Breeding Cattle. Forward: 361 head of cattle. Comprising: 88 Young Feeding Bulls, 235 Bullocks & Heifers, 33 Breeding Cattle & 5 Grazing Cows. A cracking mid-summer sale saw a full attendance of buyers at the ringside. The Special Prize Show helped to attract a good quality entry and feeders were keen to top sheds up before harvest time kicks into full swing. Young Bulls averaged £915 across the board, whilst quality bullocks and heifers were keenly contested and younger cattle again found customers in good heart having grass in abundance. Another tidy show of Breeding Cattle were a similar trade to the previous sale.
