MARKET REPORT – WEDNESDAY 3rd DECEMBER 2014. Fortnightly Sale of Young Feeding Bulls, Store Bullocks & Heifers, Breeding Cattle. Forward: 394 head of cattle, Comprising: 177 Young Feeding Bulls, 210 Bullocks & Heifers, 7 Feeding Cows. A large show of cattle for the time of year met with a packed ringside and most classes were easily cleared to a fast selling trade as feeders look to keep sheds full. Strong bullocks and Heifers were especially well sought after, whilst good commercial heifers rising a year old found plenty of favour at the ringside.
