FEEDING BULLS – A very good trade to round off the year, with a full ringside of buyers for a small show which indicates that feeders are looking to use every opportunity to keep pens full. The under 12 months bulls are just starting to come on stream with the strong end £1100 upwards. With no let up in demand for prime cattle, todays trade augurs well for the New Year Sale on Wednesday 6th January for which entries close today.

 

FEEDING COWS – Excellent trade for feeding cows and more needed for next sale.
