Cast Cows & OTM

A colossal entry of cows this week with entries from over the border in Roxburghshire and from deepest Cumbria, all selling extremely well and to competitive rates leaving all vendors satisfied with their days trading.

The sale was led by a Lim x cow from Messrs Charlton, Whiteside selling to 235.5ppk
