The article states that prime cattle trade in Great Britain will be affected by the tightening of supplies and finishers' preparation for a boom. Greenslade Taylor Hunt auctioneer Robert Venner does not think there will be the usual late spring flush of cattle. All auctioneers are aware of the fragility of the market, which is rising against a situation of minimal imports of foreign beef. But David Beaumont of Hopes Auction Mart said finishers who bought stores last autumn have made a good margin if they are selling cattle now.
