This Basuto and Cape auction very much followed the tone of the previous auction held on 26th/27th September.

 

Select types were in good demand, however others saw lots not meeting the brokers’ reserve price, these still attracted good interest after the auction at lower levels. This shows there is still demand in specific types despite the global uncertainty.

 

 

The next sale is 8th November.
