Festive stock show

Colchester livestock market’s traditional Christmas Prime Stock Show is due to be held at Colchester Cattle Market on Tuesday.

Colchester Cattle Market is the only remaining weekly livestock market in the area and the popular show is an opportunity for local farmers to show quality stock and be supported by local wholesale and retail butchers.

Livestock farmers and buyers come from a wide area to support the keenly-fought contest, where beef and sheep farmers battle it out for supremacy in each. Contact auctioneer Graham Ellis for further details on 01206 842156 or email info@stanfords-colchester.co.uk.
