Spring lambs well up on last week at both Exeter and Sedge today,

Over 2000 head penned at Exeter and up 6ppk on the week and back at the level they were making 2 weeks ago.

Sedge up 14.6 ppk on the week.

Deadweight well below live today without a shadow of a doubt and should have went up 5/10ppk and not down 10ppk for this week.

He looks a good healthy bull to me. If you can get £2k for him I think you and buyer have both done ok.
£1800/2000 for that bull but it is Organic so £2500 would be nearer what its worth.

Would be a very good bull to put onto heifers, all very well saying you need a lot of shape at the back end but a dead calve or heifer are not worth anything so better off to use a bull that means a healthy live calve up and running around quickly and a heifer or cow that is also straight up again and walking around/ fussing over the calve without any problems.
