MARKET REPORT FOR TUESDAY 11th SEPTEMBER 2018

DAIRY CATTLE (4)
Auctioneer: Jonny Dymond
Only a small entry but a fabulous trade for milk and power today.

At 3th Calving cow from B Beddoes, giving 42kg of milk, with traditional type cow saw frantic bidding eventually selling for £1500. A very smart heifer from Mark Hughes of Criggion topped the day at £1820, this heifer had style balance and giving 32kg it was not wonder she appealed to the buyers so well.

More could easily be sold at Shrewsbury, with Dairy Barrens as Calves all on the same day why go anywhere else, avoid the 6 day rule and trade with us.
