Market ”strong enough" as another month of summer rolls by

Numbers were back in Tamworth today for the second store sale for 2019 with agents saying that the market was “strong enough” and in line with prices from our last Monday prime sale on 21st January. On paper, prices were firm to dearer with some good quality compensating for another week of extreme temperatures. You can check out more photos of the top pens on our Facebook page.
