What a day for the Christmas show and sale at Shrewsbury Livestock Centre, where we received a wonderful entry of top draw quality for the Bryan Challenor Cup.
The judge for the day was Mr Philip Jenkinson from Ridley who certainly had a difficult job with the animals on offer but he carried out his role in a professional manner.
The trade was tremendous resulting in a heifer average of £1,880 with over 20 successful purchasers, with many going home with empty trailers.
63 animals came through the sale ring today and indeed more needed to satisfy the growing demand at the market.
