PRIME CATTLE - Auctioneer: Charles Hollis
More OTMs about, ever likely in view of the trade. Compared to other markets the average was 10p/Kg more than our nearest competitor and we were upwards of 24p/Kg than any other local market within our six market grid.
Clean cattle – disappointing entry and trade not exciting due 100 per cent to the quality forward.

Clean Cattle section the highlight was for a Limousin Heifer from J & R Pearce, Ashbourne which made 215p/Kg (£1204.00)
