The auctioneers merry go round is like the football managers! Leave one auction company (football team) and they turn up somewhere else!!

Wallets mart at Castle Douglas getting a new auctioneer as well I think..


I think they would have been £85.00 top line at a markets
This is where sell live and thrive has something to answer too. 90% of what i buy would be making £5 a head more dead than live. I dont buy the fancy headed ones tho. No need to quote a good trade this week in markets as thats a flash in the pan, we need consistant live trade week in week out

He was at Stirling on Monday but only got 70, they cost him 73,. He said that was him finished.
