Heavy feeder cattle firm at Silverdale

Friday March 8 agents Hayes & Co had a good size yarding of 600 cattle at the Silverdale shoe and sale. Grain fed export and trade cattle were strong on the current market. Heavy feeder cattle were also very firm in the current tough circumstances while re-stocker cattle were easier due to dry weather conditions.
