Record averages were recorded on Tuesday at Oban with a larger entry sold to the corresponding sale last year.
An excellent ringside of buyers forward from Cumbria, Yorkshire and throughout Scotland resulted in averages soaring by 69p per kg for Bullocks and 84p per kg for Heifers (I do hope this will help stop the ever declining suckler herd, as these prices look more attractive to keep cows!)NEXT SALE In Oban, Tuesday 22nd October, as advertised
