A marvellous show of cattle forward for numbers with trade bucking the trend of deadweight prices which are on the slip!!  The live trade certainly was no cheaper than last week, we also had a few cattle forward which deadweight companies could not take due to their backlogs!! And the comments were the live trade compared very favourable.

WE CAN TAKE CATTLE ANY WEEK LIVE!
