    “Trade was on fire” !!! Think the auctioneers were at a different sale to the one i watched !
    Apart from the best male and female entries the trade was at best a damp firework. Reflecting the poor quality cattle forward…at least 10 bulls should never have been entered, I would suggest better slaughtered. One breeder even attempted to sell a clearly lame bull through the ring!
    Until breeders cull harder and only offer the best animals at sales the BB breed will not move forward,
