Should bring them down to Sedgmoor(y)

Top price steer ( do not think any were higher ) made £1780, another at £1700, one vendor averaged £1670 head for his trailer load of store cattle.

Ewes and lambs one HELL HELL of a trade, new buyer in attendance looking for every couple he could get his hands on, did not care what breeds/age etc they were, top was over £300 per couple for a large pen full of mixed flock ages i think they were.

And not to be left out of the action, the trade in the stirk ring was the dearest for some time, heifers were an exceptional trade, price of note were a pen of R grade Lim heifers, they smashed the £900 head mark and these cattle 2/3 weeks ago would have been £200 head less, top heifer was a lim at about £1225 head for a 10/12 month old animal.

Talk around the ringside was that there will be a 10/20ppk drop in the beef price the next few weeks but that did not deter cattle buyers today, onwards and upwards the store/stirk cattle go.
Our lad bought ten 8 to 12 months suckler bred heifers for £640 average. Felt really sorry for the vendors as I would be spewing letting them go for that. He was chuffed tho!

I thought it looked/sounded a tidy trade seeing as there was all sorts, auctioneer who sells the stores after the cows is a good one to listen too. Cracks on fairish
To be honest the days of selling 18-20 month store cattle for £7-800 need to be over dairy bred or not, especially in this day and age of inflation. Can't see how people can survive?
