Cast Cows & OTM

No real superstars this week but good, well finished Limousin cows from Messrs R English & Son, Brownsleazes sold to a high of 245.5ppk. The same cow took the highest grossing price of the day also, realising £2096.57.

Leaner, feeding sorts saw another rise with many selling in excess of 180ppk.
