A GOOD SALE TODAY WITH 910 HEAD ON OFFER. THE MARKET WAS STEADY ON THE SHEEP END AND A TOUCH OFF ON THE GOAT MARKET. THE HOG MARKET WAS SURPRISINGLY BUOYANT EVEN THO PRICE LEVELS WERE NOT NEAR WHAT WAS DESIRED. GOOD LAMBS WERE THE HIGH POINT IN THE DAY WITH ONE LISTING FROM NEERLANDIA THAT TOOK TOP MARKS THIS SALE. THE GOAT MARKET WAS DOWN FROM A MONTH AGO QUITE SIGNIFICANTLY BUT THAT IS THE SEASON WE ARE IN AT PRESENT. THE HOG MARKET CONTINUES TO ASTOUND ME WHEN I WATCH FINISHED PIGS BRINGING SO LITTLE AND YET PEOPLE ARE STILL BUYING PORK FOR BIG MONEY IN THE STORE. I CAN'T QUITE FIGURE THIS ONE. SOWS AND BOARS ARE VIRTUALLY WORTHLESS. NEXT SALE IS ON NOVEMBER 7. I HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE.
