REPORT – OPEN DAY WITH THAME FARMERS
30th April 2016 11am – 3pm
Our second open day was a resounding success. We had buyers from as far a field as Brighton and some more local ones too. It just goes to show famrers will travel for a hot beef roll!
9 Bulls, 14 heifers & 6 cows with calves at foot sold to some new buyers and a few returning buyers.
Thanks to all new buyers and TFM for helping to make this day happen.
Also, thanks to all returning buyers; you are a testament to our quality.
