Store cattle trade has shifted up another gear and is 15-20ppk up on last month. Its long overdue for us breeding men who have been under the cosh , if prices hold until the autumn sales we might just carry on with the sucklers after all !
Yes the usual doom and gloom merchants who told those of us with cattle to sell that we had missed the boat got it wrong again. Baby calves in local mart were the best trade i'v ever seen. Saw a run of month to six week old AA calves make £450, £460 £470, unreal.

It wasn't only the sucker bred stuff . Some of the dairy stuff was big money for what they were . Trade needs to hold up into the Autumn though . Interestingly only the good cows and calves sold well ,anything not up to spec wasn't sold.

Unless they can be split and culled by the main men what sucklermen want to buy or been seen to buy the also rans. I always ask myself why they are being sold

Beef job in america and south america is in a right mess, slaughterhouses and meat packing plants are rife with the virus and spreading it to the wider population while cattle are backed up and going over-fat on ranches and feedlots. No sign of it improving either
