The article reports on results of some of the first live auction marts in England and Wales following a foot-and-mouth disease outbreak. The auction of Bagshaws recorded a good sale of finished cattle in which 59 young bulls averaged 110p/kg. McCartneys at Ludlow experienced a difficult lamb trade in which standard sorts dropped to 100p/kg. The 20-day standstill rule as well as rising feed prices led to a slowdown in store trade.
