Blistering start to 2015

What a truly blistering start to 2015 with a cracking number of cattle forward selling on an extremely buoyant trade from start to last. What a difference a year makes with cattle prices crashing last year from January onwards compared to January 2015 and lets hope it lasts!!
Nationally a shortage of bulls is driving the prices upwards and a decline in suckler herds for those superstar types is leading to some real buoyancy in trade.

The calf section saw the most forward since 3rd January1996 with 520 calves and a few weanlings. Next week is weanling week Wednesday 14th January anticipated entry of 180 to 220.
