20 Dairy Cattle & 34 Rearing Calves Easier trade compared to last week’s calf trade however buyers were out in force but with numbers in short supply a couple didn’t even get started. A large amount of young calves today making averages less but calves of all ages selling well. Church Farm Enterprises once again topped the billing with £390 for a ripper of a blue bull. Please Note Black and White Calf Buyer returning in a fortnight with good numbers required to get him started.
