The article presents an update of issues and events related to cattle trade in Great Britain. A good trade for finished cattle buoyed up store buyers' enthusiasm at Melton Mowbray market, Leicestershire, this week, where a special entry of 42 pure-bred Charolais bullocks aged 18-24 months from A Vero & Son averaged £631.07 under Martin Shouler's gavel. A flying trade for the dispersal of the Roworth family's herd produced 26 four-figure bids and a top call of £1340 for an in-milk heifer by Genus Jayson.
