Strong trade for commercial beef cattle at Holsworthy

Some of the best animals to go through the market for some time is how auctioneer David Kivell described today’s trade, which saw more than 400 cattle go through the Holsworthy Market.

The day’s highlight came in the form of a run of 65 Belgian Blue and Limousin cattle from local farmer Nigel Jenkinson of Shebbear. His Limousin cross cow with calf at foot topped trade at £800 bought by J Dixon, Northlew.
