Late turn out

They usually go out at the end of April but start of May is not that unusual.
In 2012 it was about the 10th due to being very wet.
This year still not much grass but it has suddenly turned much warmer so that will soon change.

Malton Cattle sale

This is a suckler calf sale combined with normal store cattle on Friday - lots in there so outdoor pens in use.
They are still hoping to move to a new out of town site near Eden Camp.
But that has been "about to happen" since 2013 when the lease ran out for present site.
The problem is that with likely closure in a matter of months no significant repair and maintenance is being done unless essential.
