Ha ha yes indeed I been wondering if u were Hfd Cattle last few times I've seen u there but didn't like to ask.... - Until today 😆😆😆 I thought u did well with those 4 heifers I desperately wanted to take um to £830ish but I just couldnt bring myself to bid against u....... 🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈 Far to honourable I am... 😆

🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂......
I weighed them over the weighbridge just for interest....380 kilos Ave ...£2.05 a kilo
